DELTA — When it comes to teaching physics, Favian Yee has made a big bang.

The North Delta Secondary School teacher has won a 2016 Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) Award for Excellence in Teaching High School Physics. Only five teachers received the prestigious award and Yee is the recipient for B.C. and the Yukon.

“There are so many great physics teachers out there, so I am honoured that I was chosen,” said Yee, who has taught in Delta for 20 years.

He also serves as secretary for the BC Science Teachers’ Association and chairman for the South Fraser Regional Science Fair.

He started teaching physics at NDSS in 2011 and has been head of the school’s science department for five years now.
