  • @ATL Tinkering Lab Mentors, Varya Srivastava, Swati Rao , I think I should have born 50 years later. What a wonderful journey of these 9 weeks. This Bootcamp made me forget my afternoon siesta and even my body clock made me want to get up at 4:15 PM to join the Bootcamp when I ever I took it. Hope you will be keeping this Whatsapp group to get in touch with all you wonderful people.
  • Congratulations to the students, mentors, AIM team, ATL In-charges and all other involved for the success of Tinkerpreneur Bootcamp. This has been a great learning experience and generates a new awakening among students. I am sure this would be a feather in the cap for the whole team
