Physics: Quizshow Pt. II

This week the kids finished their quizboards - hopefully by now you've see them, played them, and hopefully not broken them!

This was NOT an easy project. It took a lot of patience and attention to detail, checking and rechecking connections in the circuits, but in the end it paid off. "Operation's" got nothing on these quizboards.

I've posted this week's quiz.
Please encourage your kids to take the quiz and not to forget to sign in at the end. No, you won't be inundated with spam as a result. Signing in just allows me to track their scores, so they can get prizes. What are the prizes? Something between a taffy and a trip to Hawaii.

If you haven't already, please register your kids and send in checks next week. Those kids who aren't fully registered by next week will have to work off their debt at the Large Hadron Collider where they will be forced to collide opposing beams of protons (one of several types of hadrons) with very high kinetic energy in order to explore the validity and limitations of the Standard Model, the current theoretical picture for particle physics.

Have a great week!
