Dehradun| Atal Tinkering Lab is an approach of Central Government of India. Atal Tinkering Labs are dedicated works spaces where students (Class VI- XII) learn innovative skills and develop ideas that go on to transform India. The Lab activities are designed to spur the spark of creativity and go beyond regular curriculum and textbook learning. The labs will let students explore skills of future such as design and computational skills, adaptive learning and artificial intelligence.
The first phase of ATL’s brought India a step closer to the mission of creating one million Neoteric Child Innovators in India by 2020. 2441 schools across the country have been selected to establish an Atal Tinkering Lab. Manava Bharati India International School is also privileged to be a part of this mission.
On 13 April, 2018 ATL Community day was celebrated in the school Campus. This day was celebrated to commemorate Dr. B.R Ambedkar’s birthday and to say true to his philosophy of providing an equal opportunity to all and thereby, create a more inclusive society of young innovators.

The school hosted more than hundred students from five schools (SGRR Public School Sahstradhara Road, SGRR Senior Secondary School, Talaab, Swami Vivekananda Public School, Spring hills Public School and Max International School Dehradun).
