Miles Zakos

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A. I’m a senior at Emmaus High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject has to be physics. It feels like a very pure science, where you ask a question about the universe, and then you just go out there and test it. It’s also really broad in that you can study physics and want to learn how to make buildings or what happens when you jump in a black hole. It’s fascinating from the big to the small. Also Mr. Ohl is a fantastic teacher, passionate and intelligent.
