The effortlessly charming, bow-tie sporting Bill Nye is beloved by all generations who grew up watching his show, "Bill Nye the Science Guy". But his work didn’t stop once the show went off the air.


Thursday, November 30, 2017

In his current role as CEO of The Planetary Society, Nye is working to advance founder Carl Sagan’s passion project of solar sails. What free time he has he spends debating creationists and climate change deniers. In Bill Nye: Science Guy, we travel along with Nye as he examines ice cores and rapidly retreating glaciers, tours “troubling” biblical theme parks, and visits a convention of science teachers. Filmmakers (and fans) David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg capture candid moments with a man who admits that fame has likely changed him, but who unquestionably strives, on a daily basis, to make the world a better place through science advocacy and education.
