Professor David Nesbitt.

David Nesbitt has been awarded the 2013 Pacesetter Award in the science category. For nineteen years, David has spent one Saturday each month teaching youngsters, who range in age from 8 to 17, and their parents all about the wonders of science. In 1994 he took over as director of the CU Wizards program and has greatly expanded the range of scientific topics.

The annual Pacesetter Award has been presented by the publisher and editor of the Daily Camera for twenty-seven years to awardees in ten categories of community service and achievement.

From the Daily Camera presenters:

[David] has been instrumental in inspiring Boulder's youngsters to learn more about how things work. It doesn't hurt that he engages his audience in fun and exciting events that often possess a tiny hint of danger.

The Pacesetter Awards presentation and luncheon is being held at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at the Millenium Harvest House hotel. For more information about attending, please see the Pacesetter awards link.
