Welcome back everyone! We took spring break pretty seriously, but we're ready to come back in the wonderful world of physics at WCHS. We're going to learn a lot this last quarter.We will continue talking about waves and sound, and we'll move on to reflection and refraction and some other stuff that's just as awesome.
