The Lab is being funded by Hemant Kanakia and his other batch mates from 1975 batch of IITB graduates. The laboratory is equipped with a wide variety of scientific instruments for the studetnts to experiment with idelas that are beyond their regular curriculum. The Tinkerer's lab will be fully managed and run by student volunteers who have a special knack for designing, developing, prototyping using materials and techniques. It will be a great platform for students to employ concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and hands-on experience for developing innovative solutions. We look forward to many new and interesting projects from this laboratory. The nature of projects can vary from simple ideas in the field of electronics, mechanical, computer science to complex ideas. There is as such no shortlisting process and the laboratory is open to all students of the institute, without any kind of filtering. Interested students only need to contact TL team for assistance. This laboratory will help students to utilize their unstructured time in making innovative projects, which will in turn help the student community of IIT, Hyderabad to grow.
