Greenwich HS

Part of the WXedge Academy, we represent the Physics and Astronomy classes of Greenwich High School. Our teacher, Daryl Taylor, has entrusted us with the task of getting Connecticut folks up to snuff on any interesting science topic that happens to hit the "news". All our posts are our own original work and has been "fact-checked" by only Daryl Taylor. 

Greenwich is a relatively large community that spans most of the southwest corner of CT. Our high school has just under 3000 students in grades 9-12. We represent two Advanced Placement Physics class, one Honors Physics class, one Honors Astronomy class and one Astronomy class.
