The following is the letter sent in to to nominate Mr. Bick for the contest and help him get to the top 10 in Canada.

Mr Bick teaches us that school, science and life can be fun. Even physics! In thick glasses and bright Hawaiian shirts, he both exudes and generates enthusiasm. You could say he has a truly magnetic personality. Even his lectures on gravity don’t bring you down! When not expounding theories, explaining formulas or helping us balance equations, he’s sharing anecdotes, quoting Homer Simpson or Sheldon.

Always encouraging participation, he answers questions on light waves, dark matter, quarks, Mr Burns and Smithers. And then there are the experiments! With his guidance, we make shocking discoveries, race cars made from water bottles and balloons, and create purple smoke. Plus, he sends rockets shooting into the sky and sets countertops on fire – without setting off the sprinklers. Also, he’s the writer/director of original side-splitting, off-the-wall drama. Although away with a broken ankle now, this exceptionally committed, caring teacher sends lesson plans every day.
