"We live on a hunk of rock and metal that circles a humdrum star that is one of 400 billion other stars that make up the Milky Way Galaxy, which is one of billions of other galaxies, which make up a universe, which may be one of a very large number, perhaps an infinite number, of other universes. That is a perspective on human life and our culture that is well worth pondering."
 
-Carl Sagan
 



"Happy is he who gets to know the reasons for things!"
- Virgil (70 - 19 BC) Roman poet

 

                                                             

 

"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science.
- Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) U.S. Physicist, born in Germany

 



This page will give you links and resources to help you in your study of science. It will also let you know about some of the things we are doing in 7th and 8th grade science at the Edgartown School, as well as let you know what the homework is these days.

So enjoy!
