Farewell Mr. Wizard

It's a sad day for the Children of the 80's; our beloved Science teacher, Mr. Wizard, has passed away. Mr. Wizard taught many of us the wonders of Science and made it fun and interesting.

There is a very interesting timeline of his life on his website, including the history of his first show "Watch Mr. Wizard" in the 1950's and 60's.

I never really loved science in school. I did well enough, but it didn't excite me. But Mr. Wizard always made me excited about science and showed me new ways to look at the world. I'm glad the DVD sets are available to share this brilliant teacher with future generations.

I was going to put up a tribute to the man who was our science wizard. You beat me too it. HE will be missed.

Mr. Wizard is going to be missed. There is no doubt about it.
