Bill Nye

Television Host, Science Educator

Bill Nye is a scientist, engineer, comedian, author and inventor whose mission is making science entertaining and accessible. His fascination with how things work led him to Cornell University and a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After graduation, he headed for Seattle to work as an engineer at Boeing. It was in Seattle that Nye began to combine his love of science with his flair for comedy. Nye, eventually, quit his engineering day job and made the transition to a night job as a comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.”
 
This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central, originating at KING-TV, Seattle’s NBC affiliate. While working on the Science Guy show, Nye won seven national Emmy Awards for writing, performing and producing. The show won 18 Emmys in five years. He has written five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” 
 
Nye holds three Honorary Doctorate degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Goucher College, and Johns Hopkins. He has delivered commencement addresses at the University of California Santa Barbara, RPI, Goucher, Hopkins, Harvey Mudd College, and Caltech.
