PhysicsQuest is a set of four activities designed to engage students in scientic
inquiry. The 2008-2009 activities are linked together via a storyline and comic book that follow Nikola Tesla from his home in Croatia to his interactions with Thomas
Alva Edison and nally to his winning the right to light the World’s Columbian
Exposition in Chicago in 1893. It was at this point that alternating current (AC)
 power beat Edison’s direct power (DC) power in the great “War of the Currents.”PhysicsQuest is designed with exibility in mind – it can be done in one continuous
session or split up over a number of weeks. The activities can be conducted inthe classroom or as an extra credit or science club activity. The challenges can be
completed in any order, but to get the correct nal result all of the challenges must
be completed correctly.
The PhysicsQuest Competition
 
APS sponsors an optional Physics Quest competition designed to encouragestudents to invest in the project. If you chose to participate in the competition, yourclass must complete the four activities and you must submit their answers onlineby
