About PhysicsQuest

PhysicsQuest is a middle school competition that consists of four physical science experiments centered on a mystery. The experiments are designed to be done by small groups in a classroom or after school setting. Each of the experiments gives students a clue that they need to solve the mystery. Classes can submit their answers online and be entered into a random drawing for prizes. PhysicsQuest kits are provided free to registered classrooms.
 To read a bit about this year's challenge, as well as past challenges, visit the PhysicsCentral website.

Below is a an excerpt from an email distributed to subscribers and past participants, describing the kit a bit more:
The kit contains all the equipment you need for your class or group to preform 4 fun physics experiments focusing on for and motion.  Use yo-yos, tart pans, play-dough and much more to explore how things fall, spin, swing and fly.  The kit comes with a manual that explains the experiments as well as the physics involved.  All of it is wrapped up in the third installment of the popular Spectra comic book series.
The kits are usually sent out mid-January.

Sound like fun?  Then go to the registration page to sign up!

Does this have to be in a group, do you know? Just curious...
