This is a blog for high school students and their teachers. Comments are open on most pages and posts, but should be relevant, age-appropriate and constructive. Commercial comments or spam will be deleted. Comments which are inflammatory, abusive or pseudoscientific nonsense will also be blocked.
Opinions are generally my own and not a reflection on those of my school, though they tend to be liberal-leaning, pro-environment and pro-science. Students must always check with their own teachers if confused.
