The Innovation Space at JCS

Students working on building circuits with Makey Makey system.

The transformation of the Julian Curtiss library into a Learning Commons and Innovation Space began two years ago. This transformation began with the purchase of new book shelves, and extensive weeding of our collection, and was enhanced by the addition of iPads, Chromebooks, and other cutting edge digital tools. However the Julian Curtiss Learning Commons has now gone beyond creating a new physical space. Today the JC Learning Commons plays an important role in delivering and extending the curriculum, adding a hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) approach to learning. The goal is for students to develop essential 21st century skills: critical thinking, communication, creativity and collaboration.

Grants from both the PTA and the Greenwich Alliance have allowed Julian Curtiss to add a variety of high and no-tech resources for our students to use.

More Digital Resources

Students working together in lab.

There are numerous digital tools in our toolbox that are free for Greenwich Public School Students.

The usernames and passwords for these tools were shared with all JCS children at the beginning of the school year, in a document titled "JC Online Passwords". Your child can access this document by logging onto their GPS Google account and searching in their DRIVE, under Shared with Me.
