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>

Mr. Wizard's World was a Nick gem!
24 June 2008 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

It's too bad that Nickelodeon doesn't show as much Canadian programming as it did in its origins. While Don Herbert was not a native Canadian, he was a science teacher turned television star. This show allowed science to be fun without being intimidating or turned off by boredom of science. Let's face it, I'm not into science or math but I do remember watching this show once in a while particularly early in the morning before I went to school. I don't remember if I ever learned anything but I do remember that it was filmed in Calgary and the experiments. It was probably better than the 1970s show. Don Herbert also known as Mr. Wizard has left us only last year but his legacy is that science doesn't always have to be boring and you can learn something or at least tried too.
