In recognition of Sunbeam Academy's genuine high standards of academics the Government of India under its initiative Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) programme has selected its campus to establish a high level stem laboratory for higher dissemination of knowledge on science, technology, engineering and mathematics to pre university standard students, believing that in future technology is going to be an indispensable force to cause social impact and equality, and which is why the upcoming generation of children in India need to accomplish a three pronged vision, first fostering in themselves curiosity, creativity and imagination about design knowledge, computational thinking, problem solving skills and adaptive learning; second, creating from among themselves one million innovators who will create jobs of tomorrow; third, adapting themselves to the dramatically altering rapid technological change in order to succeed in future. The modus operandi is to let young students tinker with technological designs and concepts in order to try out their own independent and liberal ways of redoing the same technology. .In fact, the name tinkering itself is lexically suggestive that the young brains try to find their own way of rebuilding a given technology. By tinkering with the available resource material and technical information they are free to reassemble, dislocate and redesign, fidget or just discover some improvement over some technique, but in culmination they should come up with some new ideation and innovation.

Difference Between Science Lab And Tinkering Lab
Science Labs
Science Labs are designed for guided Experimenting.
Science Labs may have Expensive or fragile equipment.
Science Labs have a static design.
Science Labs activities correspond to topic in text books.
Science Labs have a fixed curriculum.
Tinkering Labs
Tinkering Labs are for open-ended experimenting, with no single solution.
Tinkering Labs have equipment appropriate to the age of the intended students so that they can tinker without the fear of damaging equipment.
Tinkering Labs are intended to evolve with the institution.
Tinkering Labs are intended towards life and creative skills. The skills developed in Tinkering Labs may or may not directly help in academics, but an indirect advantage is most certainly observed.
Tinkering Labs have a directional curriculum that is not restrictive and provides students with the scope to create and innovate.
