WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than on looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation."
The PhysicsQuests adapt the main guidelines of a WebQuest.
PhysicsQuests can be used:

- as tutorials to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom or
- as an exploration of topics that are not generally covered in class.
The PhysicsQuests have been divided in sections as follows:
