Dr. Shawn Wright

Advanced studies and careers in science are open to any student if they are prepared to learn from their mistakes, set their own goals, and enjoy the challenge. 

Dr. Shawn Wright brings his passion for geology and Earth’s history to life for his students.  With a background in US education and experience analysing data from NASA rovers on Mars, Dr. Wright has explored the secrets hidden within rocks, from volcanoes to craters. He believes a strong foundation in science is key, and equips his students with a comprehensive understanding of chemistry, physics, biology, and maths – all to fuel their own scientific curiosity and empower them to ask creative questions.
