Bill Nye–scientist, engineer, comedian, author, and inventor–will bring his special brand of pop culture science literacy to Portland on Saturday, October 25 at 7 p.m. at Lewis & Clark, 0615 SW Palatine Hill Road. The event is open to public; doors open at 6 p.m.
At the event, Nye will delve into his early history, the importance of science education, and inspiring others to change the world through it. Nye has worked to make science entertaining and accessible for most of his life. He initially discovered a talent for tutoring in high school, and spent afternoons and summers demystifying math for his fellow students.
Nye’s fascination with how things work eventually led him to Cornell University and a degree in mechanical engineering. After graduation, he headed for Seattle and work as an engineer at Boeing. It was in Seattle that Nye began to combine his love of science with his flair for comedy, eventually resulting in the show he became so well known for, “Bill Nye the Science Guy.”
Having already written six children’s books, Nye is now working on a seventh about evolution, slated for a November 2014 released entitled Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation. He’s also writing a general interest book about energy. Understand energy, Nye says, and you can change the world.
Tickets for Bill Nye are available in advance for $35 each (credit card only) by calling Lewis & Clark Student Activities at 503-768-7122. Tickets also will be available for purchase ($45 each; cash, check, credit/debit) and pickup at the Pamplin Sports Center starting at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 25.
