In a stride towards nurturing young innovators, the Centre of Excellence at KIIT TBI in collaboration with the Bhubaneswar City Knowledge Innovation Cluster Foundation recently organized the inaugural event of the “Catch Them Young Program” – the Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) Teacher’s Meet. In collaboration with esteemed partners including Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog, and a consortium of ecosystem and knowledge partners, the event witnessed an enthusiastic gathering of over 100 participants, both physically and virtually, hailing from every district of Odisha.

Distinguished speakers from prestigious organizations such as Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog, National Innovation Foundation, Regional Science Centre, and DST-Technology Enabling Centre graced the occasion, sharing insights and inspiration with attendees.

A highlight of the event was a specialized session on Intellectual Property Rights, offering invaluable hands-on experience in patentability search. Additionally, participants engaged in enriching group discussions with ATL representatives and embarked on a tour of Centre of Excellence Facilities and other lab amenities, gaining firsthand exposure to cutting-edge innovation infrastructure.

With a vision to provide holistic support to ATL students and educators in fostering their innovative projects, the program promises to be a catalyst for groundbreaking ideas and transformative learning experiences.
