Context: Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) and Meta have collaborated to launch Frontier Technology Labs (FTLs) in schools across India, aiming to democratize access to future technologies and empower youth to innovate.

  • These labs, an advanced version of Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs), will provide state-of-the-art infrastructure for students to engage with technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Augmented & Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Robotics, 3D Printing, and the Internet of Things.
  • Through workshops, interactive sessions, and project-based learning, students will learn to use AI tools effectively, explore AR & VR, and address cybersecurity challenges.


The initiative aligns with AIM’s vision to foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in schools. These labs will be managed by Meta’s partner 1M1B (One Million for One Billion).
