Bill Nye is an American science communicator, television presenter, and mechanical engineer. He is best known as the host of the PBS children's science show Bill Nye The Science Guy (1993–1998), the Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World (2017–present), and for his many appearances in popular media as a science educator.

The New York Times bestselling author issues a call to arms meant to rouse everyone to become the change they want to see in the world. Whether addressing global warming, social change, or personal success, there are certain strategies that always get results: looking at the world with radical curiosity, being driven by a desire for a better future, and being willing to take the actions needed to make change a reality.

With his signature humor and storytelling, Bill shares how he has developed specific techniques for what he calls the “everything all at once” lifestyle, from his childhood scouting adventures and his career at aerospace companies to the development of his famous Science Guy television show. This approach requires the nerd mindset: a way of thinking that leaves no stone unturned. It’s about learning to solve problems through exploration, trial and error, and sheer creativity. Problem-solving is a skill that anyone can harness to create change, and Bill Nye is here to show us how to sort out problems, recognize solutions, and join him in changing the world.

Bill is an avid supporter of the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, has served as a board member at the Mount St. Helens Institute since 2005 and believes strongly in their mission.


The Mount St. Helens Institute, a nonprofit organization based in Amboy, WA, advances understanding and stewardship of the Earth through science, education, and exploration of volcanic landscapes.

Through this event, Bill Nye and the Institute hope to generate more awareness about the importance of science and the meaningful work going on at the volcano through numerous science, education and stewardship programs, and how our community can get involved in our public lands and science.
