“We believe in providing robust opportunities for our students to think deeply and creatively, allowing them to have voice and choice while utilizing an iPad as a tool for learning across all content areas. We are committed to providing a learning environment where our students are engaged, challenged and are on a continuous path toward innovation. ”

– Jennifer Robbins, Director of Elementary Education 

Fearless Leaders

One of our goals at Gauldin is to empower our students to be leaders in their community and to share their technological knowledge and skills with other students, teachers and community members. Our Character Council and Tech Squad students create software tutorial videos for others and have even hosted assemblies for our TK through 2nd grade students to learn more about coding, resulting in more primary students wanting to explore and join the coding community.

Innovation Lab

Gauldin’s Innovation Lab is a place where creativity is powered by technology. The purpose of our Innovation Lab is to provide a space where students can create, explore, investigate, and build. These spaces have been designed to spark curiosity and inspire our students to engage in learning opportunities built around STEAM. Regular lab visits help students further develop the 21st-century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

Learning opportunities our Innovation Labs include robotics, coding, computer programming, engineering design, Lego-design wall activities, broadcasting, creating music, and engineering and design utilizing 3D printing. Students are involved in inquiry and problem-solving based on relevant and engaging topics. Our fun and colorful Innovation Lab is a place to think outside the box and give our students voice and choice and enhance their learning!
