What you'll do

Science is the process and the body of knowledge that enables us humans to know nature. So far, it’s the best idea humans have ever had.

Let’s spend some time together uncovering the science that affects our everyday lives. We’ll explore three topics particularly relevant to the here and now: the science of skin color, the impact of climate change and the transmission of coronavirus. We’ll examine molecules and maps, evaluate atmospheres and aerospace, and experiment with particles and powders, all in the name of science.
Other things to note
As a heads up, my experience will be streamed live and recorded for more fans to watch both on Airbnb.com and on YouTube, so if you book to join me, you'll also get to be part of the stream and recording.

Hi, I’m Bill – a science educator, engineer and author with a mission: to help foster a scientifically literate society and to help people understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work.

Making science entertaining and accessible is something I’ve been doing most of my life. An engineer by trade, I was able to combine my love of science with a flair for comedy in the creation of the Emmy award-winning television program “Bill Nye the Science Guy.” Today I continue to use my platform to raise awareness of climate change and the value of critical thinking, science, and reason.

Let’s change the world!

This was a once in a lifetime experience for my son. He truly enjoyed it and could not stop raving about how Bill answered his question.

AMAZING! Once in a lifetime experience! No matter young or old, you will always learn something new with Bill Nye! He showed us various experiments on real-world issues and made us learn more about the world around us. Bill was very knowledgable, humourous, and very interactive with us. Even when the initial time went over, he still stayed on longer to make sure he answered everyone's questions. Great experience for adults and children!

It isn’t every day that you get science lessons from Bill Nye himself. Parents and children were able to learn some new things and new perspectives on old things.
