Psychology – Museum of Jewish Heritage

Students visited the Museum of Jewish Heritage where they compared different artifacts in the museum to psychology. Specifically, they focused on the bystander effect, norms, and prejudice as it connects to psychology.

Students visited the United Nations Headquarters to learn about the relationship between the United States and other nations.  Specifically, students met with a representative from the Bahá’í Faith department where they learned about the process of obtaining world peace through reform and advocacy.

On Top of the Rock

“All the strangeness and the glory and the power of life and of the City was below” (Thomas Wolfe on the Manhattan Sky Line).

The activity for today was to experience the view of Manhattan from the top of the Rockefeller Center. The advantage of this view-point is that, as well as being high enough to experience a spectacular view of the whole of Manhattan, we were able to see the empire state building from an equivalent height providing a rare opportunity to study this masterpiece of Art Deco architecture.
