Professor David Wright has been sharing his love of physics with students at Tidewater Community College since 1974.
Dr. Wright became a viral sensation less than 24 hours after a student, Erica Church, shared a video of his passionate teaching methods — using fire, slingshots, pogosticks, and a bed of nails — on Twitter.
Now, TCC wants to celebrate Dr. Wright’s legacy for years to come by establishing The David Wright Scholarship Fund. This fund will pay for TCC students to take science classes so that they can experience the passion Dr. Wright had for the field.
“He clearly loves this subject,” Erica said. “He loves to make it fun for us and it’s great to see someone who loves his job that way.”
Help us share Dr. Wright’s love of science with even more students!
