Bill Nye the Science Guy at UAlbany

bill nye science guy 2015

Bill Nye -- you know, "The Science Guy" -- will be at UAlbany's SEFCU Arena March 25 as part of the World Within Reach Speaker Series. It's free and open to public (ticketing details below).

Nye is, of course, famous for his kids science show Bill Nye the Science Guy. (Before that he had been a mechanical engineer at Boeing.) Since the show finished in the late 1990s he's continued to be a pop culture figure and frequent commentator on issues such as climate change and vaccines. Also: He's been trying to crush Ed Begley, Jr.

Tickets to the UAlbany event for the general public will be available March 13, 23, and 24 in the Campus Center West Lounge from 11 am until 4 pm (four ticket max), and then on March 25 from 11 am to 2 pm in the same place. Any remaining tickets on March 25 will be distributed in the Physical Education (PE) building lobby across from the SEFCU Arena starting at 3 pm.

There will also be a limited number of free copies of Nye's book, Undeniable, distributed at the arena.
