NITI AYOG just reached out to us through the Electronics Club website . They wanted some help regarding the setting up of Atal Tinkering Labs in the schools over North east . This is a co funded project from INTEL and Govt. of India details of which is beside the point . The idea is to set up these labs where schools would be provided with monetary benefits to help innovative students . So anyways , they had already shortlisted 59 schools out of around 500 schools (their words not mine!) in the northeast ,and they needed to narrow down the list to a lesser number . Thats where we come in . A team of Electronics Club Members(8) was sent to assist them from IIT Guwahati .
Being one of the members in the judging panel was an experience different altogether .
