For 3 decades, Nick Georgis was a beloved figure at Staples High School. He taught physics — and through his K1UAT Ham Radio Club introduced hundreds of students to that intriguing hobby. When he contacted fellow ham radio operators Barry Goldwater and King Hussein, his classroom overflowed with eager listeners.
After retiring he designed Nerdkards, a series of baseball-like trading cards — portraying famous scientists and mathematicians.
Now 82, Nick is writing his memoirs. He’s calling it Mr. G’s Odyssey B.A. (before Alzheimer’s sets in).
He’s looking for anecdotes, stories, photos — anything — from anyone who remembers him from Staples. To be included in what he calls “this classic piece of science classroom drama,” email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 203-926-0286.
