Four Shelton High School students spent a recent October weekend applying physics in a practical context at the Yale Physics Olympics. They earned first place in one of the events.

Students participated as a team in five 45-minute events. Points are awarded based on the accuracy of the team’s results, with prizes awarded to the winning teams.
