Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!

The only thing better to watch at school than the Magic School Bus was Bill Nye the Science Guy. This quirky scientist was not only funny but made science interesting. The show had 100 episodes covering volcanoes, electricity, humans and more. There were cool experiments, interesting facts, and funny skits that helped students see that “science rules.” And who could keep themselves from singing along to the theme song?

My favorite part of the show was at the end where they would do a music video of a song that correlated with the episode that was a parody of a popular one. The one I will never forget was done to TLC’s Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls featured at the end of an episode on volcanoes. It even mimics their music video! I highly recommend checking this out and more on YouTube.

By the end of elementary school we all had our own theories as to what happened to our favorite science guy. There was the typical “he overdosed on drugs” or “went to jail” But the truth is… he’s still around! In 2005 he had a PBS series called “The Eyes of Nye” which was more for older people. He has appeared on several TV shows; most recently as the “Ask the Expert” lifeline in Who Want’s to be a Millionaire and host of StuffHappens. So here is to Bill Nye, the man who taught me science!

5 Responsesto “Bill Nye the Science Guy”

  1. Fire G says:

    Bill Nye was THE coolest person back in elementary/middle school. He’s actually the reason why I want to become a theoretical physicist (think quantums of space and matter…uh, black holes and worm holes).

    I didn’t like the music videos at the end of the episodes, they were terrible even back then.

    Still the greatest and catchiest intro ever!

  2. [...] Bill Nye the Science Guy – usually my pick for “educational TV night” at the Thornberry household. [...]

    Oh God yes!!! Ha. I’m a junior in high school now and my physics class will, on occasion, try to convince our teacher to do a Bill Nye day.
