Staying true to Dr Ambedkar’s philosophy and ideologies, Ramjas School R K Puram opened up their Atal Tinkering Laboratory (ATL) to all surrounding schools as well as local NGOs in order to give an opportunity to students who don't have access to these facilities.
The chief guest for the day was Dr Ayesha Choudhary from Atal Innnovation Mission- NITI Ayog. School Principal Mrs Rachna Pant and Dr Ayesha Choudhary interacted and encouraged the children to think differently about problems, introducing them to the world of technology innovation and unlocking their innovative mind at a young age

Students got a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand what, how and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

The Earth Day Celebrations
On the prosperous occasion of the Earth Day, Ramjas School, R.K. Puram from the courtesy of the Eco club and some students of class 10 organized a special function to nurture and spread awareness among the young minds about the theme of ‘End Plastic Pollution' this year. The students organized several interesting competitions as well as some unique programs to make the young youth understand the importance and relevance of the Earth Day. The function started by imparting knowledge about the significance and history of the Earth Day celebration. After imparting the knowledge about the significance of the Earth Day, the results of the competitions were announced first of which was the Best out of Waste competition which was organized to encourage the students to show their creativity and enhance their skills to make something innovative with some common yet eco-friendly materials which we think is a complete waste. Keeping the theme in mind the students also had a poster making and poetry competition. The students made magnificent posters depicting the ways to end plastic pollution. Poems were also recited both in English and Hindi to make the students realize the real importance of Earth Day. When anything is depicted by a picture or presented in an audio format, it leaves a deep impression in our minds and influence our soul to work for a good cause. This was followed by a skit with comical representation in a healthy manner by taking up a real-life situation which had the main theme of a plastic devil giving a message as well as scaring the students not to throw plastic anywhere. The students by enacting the skit left a very influential and deep message about the disadvantages of throwing plastic. Last and the most important was the tree plantation ceremony which actually depicted our pledge to save mother Earth and influence the future generations to plant more trees for human survival.
This year’s Earth day celebration had everything in it. After the eloquent and persuasive posters had a diverse influence as an act of scintillating slogans and catchy cartridge sketches shaped a new vision for the future, it was now the turn for the little ones to show what they had. Their creative craft work from simple waste materials to an unimaginable miniature piece bolstered their ideas for nature and usable things build up from rags and plastics stood outspoken for everyone-The best out of waste competition results were declared and the winners- the little ones were bestowed with cash prizes. Class X students were also given the golden opportunity to visit TERI - TATA ENERGY AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE, India's first sustainable building as a part of the Earth Day celebration's educational excursion trip . They presented a short report on their visit and the sustainable and energy conserving methods used in the TERI building.
