Website Detail Page

published by the American Physical Society
This web site hosts the materials for an annual middle school competition that consists of four physical science experiments centered on a mystery. 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.

The current year's competition is available to join and the materials from previous years are available for download.
