PhysicsQuest (http://physicscentral.com/experiment/physicsquest/index.cfm)
Kits are free and include all materials. It takes MONTHS to receive it, so order and forget about it. ;) It will be like Christmas when it shows up.

PhysicsQuest: Spectra’s Quantum Leap http://physicscentral.com/experiment/physicsquest/images/Spectra-comic-book.jpg
Registration is now open (http://ultron.aps.org/forms/aps.cgi?ID=201007) for next year’s FREE Spectra kit including the activity manual, comic book, and all materials!
Tesla Junior High is in ruins after H. Toueaux destroyed the gym during the big swim meet. The gang is scattered among 3 different middle schools as they wait for their school to be rebuilt. When Lucy’s mom takes their ancient mini-van to Black Body Repair she gets a little more than she bargained for. Owner and chief mechanic Pauli Black gives the van more than new breaks, he gives it a quantum kick. Can Spectra’s laser powers stop The Quantum Mechanic’s super powered machines from wreaking havoc on their small town? With the gang so spread out, Spectra will have to use both her laser powers and the quantum additions to her mom’s mini-van to save the day.
As students help Spectra and her gang, they will learn about topics in modern physics including what’s hidden in a rainbow, why physicists sometimes claim there are 10 dimensions, and why Wint-O-Green lifesavers spark in the dark. Though modern physics may seem like a difficult subject to teach middle schoolers, it ecompasses some of the coolest stuff in physics. These unique, accessible experiments will engage and inspire your students. Register now! (http://ultron.aps.org/forms/aps.cgi?ID=201007)

Thanks, this looks great! It should come at the perfect time as we will be starting LOF Elementary Physics sometime around then.
