Yesterday, Don Herbert passed away after losing his battle with cancer. He was 89.
You see, Don Herbert was, and will forever remain, Mr. Wizard. Mr. Wizard’s World was a science related TV show on Nickelodeon that I loved in my childhood. Mr. Herbert would show all kind of crazy and fun experiments to make science fun to learn. As the kid that took apart everything and loved to know how things worked, this show helped me see great and interesting things.
Rest in peace Mr. Wizard and thanks for fueling the mind of this, then, future Mechanical Engineer.
