TED Talks- November

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). Their agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. Join us for Glow-in-the-dark sharks and other stunning creatures. Just a few meters below the waves, marine biologist and explorer-photographer David Gruber discovered something amazing – a surprising new range of sea creatures that glow in many colors in the ocean’s dim blue light. Join his journey in search of bio fluorescent sharks, seahorses, sea turtles and more, and learn how these light-up creatures could illuminate a new understanding of our brains.

Multicultural Book Discussion Group

We are in the process of developing a multi-cultural book discussion group. If you would like to participate or have suggestions for some good reads, please see Milcah.




Curious About Culture?

Since we can’t all jet set around the world to experience other cultures, we will bring culture to us! We will explore the food, customs, religions and lives of people in other lands. Please see Milcah to share suggestions.
