Objectives of the Tinkering lab

  1. To provide curious minds platforms to learn through “do it yourself” where they can experiment with, learn and conceptualize various scientific ideas.
  2. To foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds.
  3. To instill professional and personal skills in various fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
  4. To inculcate a desire for enquiry-based learning and oscillate the students towards the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
  5. Project based learning of basic principle of science from nature.

Activities of the Cell

  1. Organize visits of the young students from the local schools and colleges and expose them with the sophisticated instruments and laboratories of the university which will develop their interest to pursue the higher studies which otherwise is very low in Punjab.
  2. Faculty of the university will deliver lectures on various current and upcoming issues which help them to shed their inhibitions and help them to think in innovative way.
  3. Training workshops for the school teachers
  4. Organize Science fairs and exhibitions to showcase the innovative thinking of the students.
  5. Provide ambience and tools for practically experiencing the theories students learn in the classroom.
  6. Training the teachers of nearby schools to conduct STEM practicals with real life examples.
