This web site has links to the materials for the 2006 Physics Quest middle school competition, hosted by the APS.  The 2006 lesson covers static electricity, conductors and insulators, heat, and optics. These are connected to the life and science of Benjamin Franklin.  The experiments are designed for small groups in a classroom or after school setting. Each of the experiments gives students a clue to solve the mystery.
