Bill Nye

Science Rules: Why Science is Cooler than Ever
Wednesday, November 16, 2016

Bill Nye the Science Guy—engineer, scientist, comedian, author, and inventor—is a man with a mission: to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye’s wit and enthusiasm helped garner numerous Emmy awards for his PBS/syndicated series Disney Presents Bill Nye the Science Guy.

A few years ago Bill wrote his first book for a general audience, Undeniable – Evolution and the Science of Creation, featured on the New York Times’ Bestsellers List. He considers it a primer on the discoveries and principles of evolution. With this book and all his writing for children, Bill hopes to change the world.

He earned a degree in mechanical engineering at Cornell University, studying under Carl Sagan, and spent several years working as an engineer at Boeing and other places until he combined his dual love of science and comedy to create the Science Guy. He is the CEO of the Planetary Society, the world’s largest space-interest group.
