Bill Nye the Science Guy is coming to Calgary this weekend

Nov 12 2019, 10:50 am


Beloved scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy will put his science tips and tricks on display this weekend in Calgary.

On November 17, Bill will stop by the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium for an entertaining evening of science, education, and discovery, with an audience Q&A.

Bill Nye is an American science educator, speaker, engineer, comedian, television presenter, author, and inventor, who, throughout his whole career, has been trying to help people understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work.

While working on 747 aircraft at Boeing, he entered and won a Steve Martin look-alike contest in Seattle, which led to his performing as a stand-up comic.

He met a few other comedians and started submitting jokes to Almost Live, Seattle’s own comedy show, where he came up with the iconic “Science Guy” character and quickly realized that he wanted to create a kids’ show about science.

Bill Nye the Science Guy ran on PBS Kids from 1993 to 1998 and won 18 Emmy Awards.

Bill is known for making science entertaining and accessible for scientists young and old, and now he’s bringing his talents to Calgary for an evening of science and fun with the Science Guy himself.

Tickets for the event are available online.
