    Innovation Lab

    Paxtonia Elementary is focused on creating engaging student centered and personalized learning experiences for all students. We are committed to the integration of technology as well as active student learning to build 21st Century skills in our students. Currently, we are building an innovation laboratory. This space will create an opportunity for students to collaborate, invent and learn through play. If you would like to support our efforts please drop off supply or fund donations to the school office. Below is an attachment that outlines some of the common items we need to supply our projects as well as a few pictures of our current progress. A student has already created a robot for our laboratory!!! With your support and our students' creativity we know great things are to come. Thank you for all your help in this process.
