News from GHS INNOVATION LAB
Innovation Lab is hosting an Open House for Prospective Applicants/Parents at GHS on Thursday, January 12, from 6-7 pm. Room 500 in Lower Cantor House.
New for 2023:
- For the first time, we have openings for Humanities 9 and 10 for Spring Semester 2023. Humanities blends English and social studies to meet all requirements. If you are an intellectually curious, dynamic learner who thrives in a collaborative, project-based environment, InLab is for you!
- Are you in 8th grade? We are piloting an Innovation Lab Biology for 9th graders. Stay tuned for more information, or join us at the Open House.
- We are excited to share that our 10th-grade Humanities class will have a UConn ECE Option for American History (pending enrollment.)
Greenwich High School’s Innovation Lab is a project-based learning program dedicated to fostering creativity, collaboration, and curiosity in a rigorous academic setting that meets all of the core course requirements. This application-based, personalized community emphasizes the importance of partnerships between students and teachers. Social Studies and English are combined into Humanities, while Math and Science are combined into STEM. The interdisciplinary curriculum functions separately from Advanced Placement courses as InLab’s philosophy concentrates more on the benefits of deep learning. However, with proper planning, enrollment in AP courses remains an option for qualified students.
Project-based learning encourages students to use what they learn in the classroom to inspire large-scale research projects that tackle real-world issues. Much of the research conducted is presented to a wider audience or exhibited at public organizations and museums. For example, classes are invited to curate an exhibition at Greenwich’s Bruce Museum, as well as enter their projects into competitions at the national level. Innovation Lab embeds the GHS Vision of the Graduate capacities throughout the program with a focus on developing research skills and collaboration skills both inside and outside of the classroom and incorporates the principles of the Stanford d.school’s design thinking and innovation.
