Bill Nye – scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor – is a man with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society, to help people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye’s wit and enthusiasm have helped to garner 18 Emmy awards for his PBS/syndicated series Disney Presents Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Nye is also the host of Stuff Happens, a show examining the everyday stuff of our lives, and the far-reaching effects our actions have on the planet. He uses his trademark humor, to help viewers gain understanding on big issues, like the environment and sustainability, and presents positive, upbeat solutions to these critical problems.

Serving as an ambassador for science education, Nye has traveled across the US and has served on children’s education, science, and TV committees and acted as an advocate for children’s safety and health.

An accomplished author, Nye has written five books including, Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Big Blast of Science, Bill Nye the Science Guy’s Please Consider the Following—A Way Cool Set of Science Questions, Answers and Ideas to Ponder, and his most recent book, Bill Nye the Science Guy Considers the Big Blue Ocean.

After a debate with a creationist who believes the world is only 6,000 years old, Nye 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, and with his book and all his writing, Nye hopes to change the world. His next book for the general audience will explore the subjects of energy and climate change, while his next children’s book will be about space exploration.

Nye supports the need to raise the standard of living for women and girls by educating people as effectively as possible. With Disney, Nye wrote and produced Solving for X, a series on DVD about algebra, which turns out to be the most reliable indicator of whether or not a student will pursue a career in science – girls especially.

Nye received a mechanical engineering degree from Cornell University, where he studied under Carl Sagan. He joined Boeing Commercial Airline Company in Seattle, where he worked on flight control systems until his love of entertainment led to work as a stand-up comic and his eventual creation of the persona of the Science Guy.

Bye currently speaks regularly at colleges, appearing often on news and television about a variety of topical science matters, and remains the CEO of the Planetary Society. He fights to raise awareness of climate change and the value of critical thinking, science, and reason. Through all his work, Bye hopes to inspire people everywhere to change the world.

Bill Nye Speaker Testimonials Back to top

We had so much wonderful feedback from our day with Bill! We really enjoyed our time with him, his presentation, and his time with the kids at the Hands-on Museum. Please thank him for such a wonderful visit. He was charming and a delightful person to work with!
-Llamasoft

The event went so well! Everyone that saw the show raved about how good it was and loved Bill. He signed posters for everyone, including the Student Activities Board members and took group pictures with the Board and meet and greet winners. Overall, this is one of the biggest events we have had in quite some time and I think that people will be talking about it for a long time.
-Truman State University

The event went very well. We sold out and it was an enthusiastic crowd. The students loved his talk and he was great to work with. He was really engaging, humorous, and educational – all in all, a major success!
