WikiMechanics started in the 1970s as NJ Hunter worked to find more effective ways of educating high-school and freshman-university students. Her work is based on decades of experience teaching physics at Centennial Senior Secondary School and Simon Fraser University, both in British Columbia, Canada. She held BSc and MSc degrees in Physics from the University of British Columbia. Her student exercises have been published.1 In 1996 NJ Hunter died of cancer at age 49.
WikiMechanics moved online after 2000 as TB Cave uploaded and extended the ideas of his teacher NJ Hunter. He has a BSc in Physics from Simon Fraser University, and a MSc from the University of Toronto, Massey College. His student exercises have been published.2,3 Now retired after a career in social marketing and development banking, he lives in Vancouver, Canada.
