The occasion witnessed all the stake holders of this massive change –Around 100 children from 17 schools of Delhi- NCR, parents, NGOs , social welfare organizations, tinkering and brainstorming under one roof in Atal Laboratory, to experience the world of Science and future technologies.
One could not help feel astounded at the hands-on-sessions conducted during the day which created wonders of technology like 3D Printers working with wood, metal and PLA, marble machines etc. The projects made by the students like Autobot, Hovercraft, Prosthetic hand, First Aid dispenser, Noiseless Copy Submission machine, Smart shopping card spoke volumes about theiringeniousness.

Community Day celebration was a reflection of our belief that life-changing tasks such as preparing our youth to solve real world problems,with 21st century skill sets,can be accomplished only when each and every member of our community is roped in it and becomes an integral part of it. The event was successful in sending the vibes of the change across the hearts of the participants and the school would continue with its endeavours in this direction in future too.
