Here's what you've been missing
"As an engineer (and a human) the amazing things one can accomplish with some basic tools and a little science know-how are endless.”
“Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is an expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found.”
“This time around I wanted to put a different spin on climate awareness.”
"I thought it would be big fun to explore the science of the seasons. Inside you’ll find some interesting activities that are representative of each juncture of our calendar year."
"This mailing will get you thinking about how to do more with less. We may only be human, but we can certainly change the world.”

About Bill Nye
When you explore these items, two things will happen. You’ll make discoveries, and you’ll have an adventure.
Bill Nye is a mechanical engineer who wants the world to know and appreciate the passion, beauty, and joy (the P, B, & J) of science. While working on 747’s at Boeing, he entered and won the Steve Martin Look-Alike Contest in Seattle, which led to his performing as a standup comic. He met a few other comedians and started submitting jokes to Almost Live, Seattle’s own comedy show. There, Bill came up with the Science Guy® character and quickly realized that he wanted to create a kids’ show about science. Eleven years later, The Bill Nye the Science Guy show had won 18 Emmys. Bill won seven of them, as host and head writer.
These days, Bill travels around the globe exhorting his audiences to Change the World. He also has a day job as the CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s largest non-governmental space interest organization. The Society was started by Bill’s astronomy professor at Cornell, Carl Sagan, a man who had a tremendous influence on Bill, deepening his respect for science and what he likes to call “our place in space.”
Bill has written six children’s books and is working on a seventh about space exploration. He’s also writing a general interest book about energy. Understand energy, Bill says, and you can change the world. He was awarded the Ralph Coats Roe Medal by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and he holds honorary doctorates from Johns Hopkins, Rensselaer Polytechnic, Goucher, Quinnipiac, Williamette, and Lehigh Universities.
