The Marathon will be open to all ATL schools across the country who aspire to make a difference and contribute to the school’s success in becoming an Innovation Hub.

The Marathon’s focus is on identifying a problem and developing innovative solutions that align with the National Agenda of creating a New India by 2022. The innovative solutions should ideally focus on the 6 focus areas in alignment with National Agenda:

It will help schools leverage their technological resources made available as a part of ATL space and also encourage students to develop problem-solving, collaboration and creative skills. The Tinkering Marathon envisages every ATL school to submit their best Innovation entries in the 6 focus areas identified by NITI Aayog, between October 2 to October 31, 2017. These will be evaluated and the top 100 entries will be selected for the Atal Tinkering Marathon National finals, to be held in December, at New Delhi, the dates of which will be announced soon.
