Culture: (noun) is a pattern of behavior shared by a society, or group of people.
Many different things make up a society’s culture.
If you want to make a difference across the world, consider becoming a Peace Corps Volunteer or an aid worker for an international organization like the Red Cross or the USAID. In these positions, you will have t the opportunity to visit countries across the globe that are in dire need of assistance during wars, famines and in the aftermath of natural disasters. Many of these organizations offer a full salary, housing, and student loan deferment and the experience will stand out on your resume. Having a background in health, social services, agriculture and international relations is helpful when working with international aid groups.
Let’s make a rainbow! Ms. Eliana and Ms. Oshima at the Dr. Ledyard E. Ross Unit taught their group how to make their own rainbow! All you need to do is fold a paper towel in half, color 5 vertical stripes on each side of the paper towel (same colors on both ends leaving enough white space in the middle for the rainbow to form), dip each colored end into a cup of cold water, and watch as the colors meet to create a rainbow!

All around the world, the rainbow has a different meaning! In Greco-Roman mythology, the rainbow was considered to be a path made by a messenger (Iris) between Earth and Heaven. In Chinese mythology, the rainbow was a slit in the sky sealed by goddess Nüwa using stones of five different colors. Try looking up what the rainbow means in the Bible, in Amazonian cultures, and Hindu philosophy!
