Human history is invention—to help understand and improve our world! The students can dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small! The students were given a challenge to build their own robot, with no restrictions attached!
In this era of technology, rapid developments are being made everyday especially in the field of electronics, where automation of dangerous tasks is the top priority.
This is how ATL (ATAL TINKERING LAB), a version of scientific innovation from young minds, finds a mark on NHPS.
Our students rose to the occasion in translating their creative and innovative skills in science and technology. They utilized the facilities provided by the school and came up with successful projects which would benefit mankind and our country in particular.
Recently our students were involved in making small drones on their own, in the ATL with the latest electronic gadgets (funded by the Government of India) to detect and suffice our day to day requirements such as detecting hazardous gases, saving water resources at dams and applying the ideas of SWACHH BHARATH even to the remotest spots in India.
The live demo given by our students fascinated the entire school community and it will inspire others too!
NHPS wishes them Good Luck for all their future endeavours.
ATL Monthly Challenge
Problem Statement 1: Design and Program a Mobile app using MIT App inventor that can differentiate between good mask (example- N95 mask) and bad mask (example- DIY mask). You can use Machine Learning for kids to create object detection algorithm.
Problem Statement 2: Design and program an app that can distinguish between mask and no mask.
The challenge can be done individually or in a team consisting of 2 or 3 members (one girl member is must).
Winner will get Amazon gift coupons worth Rs 2000/-, 1st runner up will get Amazon gift coupons worth Rs 1500/-, 2nd runner up will get Amazon gift coupons worth Rs 700/-.The apps will be judged on the basis of ease of use, UI/UX of the app and the program and the algorithm. Reference links are given below:

There was an overwhelming response for the ATL Monthly Challenge for the month of June and July. We are very proud of all the participants. Two problem statements were given:
1. ‘Differentiate between Good Mask and Bad Mask’
2. ‘Distinguish between Mask and No Mask’
The participants came up with very thoughtful concepts. However, there were only three winning teams/individuals.
Congratulations! - June-July Challenge Winners
This challenge will be on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by United Nations.
Last day for the submission is 30th of September 2020. Students may participate individually or in a team of 3.Prizes:
Winner: Amazon Coupon worth Rs.2000

Atal Tinketing Lab Monthly Challenge for the month of November – December 2020.Redesigning App
Imagine waking up one day and you forget how to use your smart-phone, how will you feel about it. Will you be struggling to navigate around? Will it be easy to find what you are looking for?
Well it will be painfully irritating to navigate around. Usability is not just limited smart-phones and the apps installed in that smart-phone. User Experience or UX is applied in every day to day things that you use! UX basically deals with solving problems and making a product more efficient.
For this challenge you will have to redesign any one of the below mentioned apps:
- Google Chrome
The redesigning is just changing UI or User interface of the appyou will have to do 4 things,
We as humans are habitual of making something really simple to something as complex as a jalebi. Well this challenge is something of that sorts. You will have to do a simple task in a complex way.
- Turn page of newspaper
- Switch ON/OFF light
- Cut a cake
The working of machine should be recorded and sent to email@example.com
The working video should be single shot with a fun commentary. There should not be any editing if any editing found entry will be disqualified.
