Registration for PhysicsQuest 2011: Spectra Heats Up!

Each year I register our homeschool for the PhysicsQuest challenge.  By doing so, we are sent a great science kit with supplies for several experiments, all provided free to educators (including homeschoolers).

I received an email today notifying me that registration for 2011 is now open. I've copied and pasted the notice below for those of you who also might want to register.  Kits will arrive after the holidays, usually in February, if I remember correctly. Have fun!

PhysicsQuest 2011: Spectra Heats Up!  

Sign up to receive a FREE PhysicsQuest kit.  Students will do experiments relating to heat and temperature as they try and help Spectra solve the mystery of Tesla Junior High’s mysterious weather.  Kits contain all the materials needed to do 4 fun and exciting physics experiments as well as a manual and comic book.  As the students complete the activities they will be learning the physics they need to save the world, or at least Tesla Junior High.  There are a limited number of kits so sign up now!
A few weeks into their second year at Tesla Junior High the gang realizes things are really changing, well, the temperature at least.  Why is Lucy’s pool too hot to handle?  Snowed in in the middle of September?  No one can figure out what is going on.  On top of all this physics confusion, Lucy is being harassed by the newest student at Tesla Junior High, Tiffany Maxwell.  Could she be behind the odd things happening or is Lucy just blaming her because she is trying to steal her spot on the relay team?  Is she just a typical “mean girl” or is there more to her than her well-manicured nails, high-heeled boots and a sharp tongue?  Join Lucy Hene (aka Spectra) and her gang as they once again use their physics knowledge to save the world, or at least Tesla Junior High.
