poster-10-17In 1934, the people of Inishmaan learn that a Hollywood director is coming to a neighboring island to film a movie.  No one is more excited than Billy, a physically disabled boy, who dreams of leaving his rural life for the American Dream.  As news of his audacity ripples through the gossip-loving community, the play becomes a merciless portrayal of a world so comically cramped and mean-spirited that hopes and dreams are an affront to its order.

nobel-laureate-with-studentsOn Wednesday, October 19, Dr. Sheldon Lee Glashow, Nobel Laureate for Physics and Metcalfe Professor at Boston University visited Quincy High School to speak to 100 students from both Quincy and North Quincy High Schools.  (Follow this link for biographical information:  https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1979/glashow-facts.html)

This is the first of several visits to Quincy Public Schools by Nobel Laureates planned for this school year, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Edward Shapiro from the Nobel Laureates School Visits (www.nobellaureatesschoolvisits.org) and Eric Mason from Mayor Koch’s Office.  Dr. Glashow’s presentation to students, included answering questions prepared by the students after they reviewed his Nobel lecture “Toward a Unified Theory — Threads in a Tapestry.” (https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1979/glashow-lecture.html)

High School Principals Robert Shaw and Lawrence Taglieri and Science Department Chairs Kenneth Panaro and Edward Smith collaborated with Superintendent Richard DeCristofaro on planning the Nobel Laureate visits and look forward to the enhancements to the middle and high school Science curriculum provided by these distinguished guests.
