About Our Learning Materials

About Banner

It starts with a story. Paige & Paxton content, curriculum and events are based on characters and storylines from the book series. Engaging storylines and adorable puzzle piece characters introduce STEM topics and careers to children through a childhood lens.

The main characters of the series, Paige, Paxton, Penelope, and Parker, are doing the same things as children, asking the same questions and finding answers in STEM. This approach makes STEM real and relevant to children while building a sense that they too can be someone who knows about, enjoys and even engages in STEM.

Meet Paige

Paige Experiment

Age: 6
Perfect Fit: Science
Favorite Food: Pancakes
When she grows up she wants to be: A Dentist

Six-year-old Paige is the centerpiece of the Paige & Paxton series. She introduces science as the way we find out how things work and why things are the way they are. Like many of our children, Paige has all the makings of a good scientist: she loves to ask questions, observe the world and perform experiments. It’s the basis of scientific inquiry and investigation. With her big, beautiful brown eyes and large pink bow, Paige’s character is designed to shatter the misconception that girls can’t be both pretty and smart.

Meet Paxton

Paxton Potato Clock

Age: 5
Perfect Fit: Technology
Favorite Food: Popcorn
When he grows up he wants to be: Doesn’t know yet

Paxton is Paige’s younger brother. He has the key attribute that all technology gurus possess from day one: he loves to tinker—to take things apart and put them back together again. While he loves to play with computers and remote control toys, Paxton is beginning to learn that technology is more than just gadgets. Technology is creating new things and new ways of doing things to make our lives easier. He’s slowly getting it: he’s working on an app to eat his vegetables. That will certainly make his life easier!

Meet Parker

Paige Experiment

Age: 6 and a half
Perfect Fit: Math
Favorite Food: Pie
When he grows up he wants to be: the same professional as his mom, a CPA (Certified Puzzle Accountant)

Parker is Paige and Paxton’s cousin. He’s so cool, and he loves math to boot. He’s 6 years old—correction: 6 and a half! That’s one of the reasons Parker loves math. He loves to be precise. The charismatic Parker is the perfect puzzle to help children develop an appreciation for math as something we count on every day to make sense of the world. We use math to quantify, describe and organize both the concrete and the abstract. But more importantly, math follows a growth mindset: it’s something that we can all be good at. It simply takes practice.

Meet Penelope

Paige Experiment

Age: 5 years old
Perfect Fit: Engineering
Favorite Food: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
When she grows up she wants to be: Aerospace Engineer

Penelope is Paige and Paxton’s friend. Through Penelope, we discover engineering as the way we make sure things work the way they’re supposed to work. We also learn what it takes to be a good engineer. Penelope is smart, but she also has the requisite soft skills: the ability to solve problems and to work effectively with others. Like Paige, her appearance is about shattering stereotypes. Penelope is pink and proud of it, putting the world on notice that girls can be girls while excelling at everything that boys excel at.
