VALUE DIVERSITY

More than 12 million immigrants arriving in New York City were greeted by the sight of the Statue of Liberty and were processed through Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. Students explore the experiences of immigrants arriving in New York City and what challenges they faced. Students examine why people emigrated to the United States in the 19th and early 20th centuries and where they settled, noting the role of the Irish potato famine.

SCIENCE

One World Trade Center is one of the “greenest” buildings in the city. What does it mean to be a green building? What kind of material and energy considerations result in a lower carbon footprint, and what might buildings of the future look like? Students learn about green technologies at One World Observatory and get to design their own green building.
