Storyline

With the help of his young assistants, Mr. Wizard starts each episode with a demonstration that at first glance should be impossible, but is actually based firmly on basic scientific principles. Mr. Wizard's explanations are aimed at kids, but are in-depth enough to be educational and interesting for anyone. His experiments are usually kept simple enough for parents and kids to re-create at home. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Stacy Petriuk rules in Mr. Wizard's World
25 April 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I never get enough of this great science show as long there are ones with Stacy Petriuk in the show. This deserves ten stars because this is as good as it get, just as if I never get enough of Bill Nye the Science Guy. This science show rules, especially for Stacy Petriuk. Don Herbert is one of the best science men since Bill Nye, because he understand how things work or what they do as he explains, just as if any high school science teacher explains. That was one of my favourite shows, even since I was a kid, until this year as a grownup man. Long live Don Herbert. Since I understood science in high school, I understand exactly why Don Herbert understands science all the time.
