All schools with ATLs are obligated to purchase equipment as per the following two ATL Equipment lists:
All the equipment considered necessary as suggested by experts have been classified into the following four packages:
P1 – Electronics Development, Robotics, Internet of Things, and Sensors
P2 – Rapid Prototyping Tools
P3 – Mechanical, Electrical, and Measurement tools
P4 – Power Supply, Accessories and Safety equipment
The schools can take help of resources on http://aim.gov.in/resources.php to understand about components and equipment.
An indicative list of vendors has been announced by NITI Aayog. The list, however, is neither exhaustive nor mandatory; it is indicative and suggestive. Schools can obtain material from other sources as well in accordance with their convenience, quality, and pricing. This decision can be taken at the school’s discretion.
