IIT Gandhinagar, a relatively new institute with the aim to foster creativity among young engineers, researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs, in its endeavor to embed learning-by-doing in the academic curriculum established Tinkerers' Lab at its newly built campus in January 2018 with the support from IIT Bombay Alumni of 1975 batch. The Tinkerers' Lab, popular as TL among students, is a technical facility with essential mechanical, electrical, and electronics tools and equipment to build and program things. The TL at IITGN is completely a students' initiative that requires our students to execute day-to-day operational and maintenance tasks. Despite various challenges, our students have been able to keep TL open to all students on a 24/7 basis. We at IIT Gandhinagar are really excited to see the phenomenal success of TL in encouraging students to start tinkering and explore technology as their hobby to build and innovate.
Coming together, sharing together, working together, succeeding together.
