Sometimes the United States is described as a "melting pot", because all of our citizens have immigrated here from other countries (everyone except Native Americans, who already lived in North America). But we could also think about our country as a huge GUMBALL MACHINE, containing so many different tastes and talents from our unique heritages! Utilizing this rich blend of cultural and genetic history, our citizens have made important contributions to the areas of the ARTS, COMMUNICATIONS, SCIENCE. ENGINEERING, and TECHNOLOGY...and many other fields of study. Take pride in how our ancestors overcame obstacles to contribute great advances to our lives, and to the people of the world...and let this inspire you to follow YOUR dream, and contribute positively to our society.
Learn which contributions to the world and our country you think are most important, and how this might contribute to your future career choices, and also to your pride as an American citizen. PART 1 focuses on the areas of Arts and Communications.
