Bill Nye

Biography: Bill Nye, scientist/comedian/teacher/author/politician/actor, is a man with a mission. He's out to turn kids on to the way cool wonders of science!

With his weekly, half-hour television series, Disney Presents Bill Nye the Science Guy, he's letting kids know that science is not only cool, it's powerful. After all, "Science rules!"

Nye's fascination with how things work led him to Cornell University and a degree in mechanical engineering. After graduation, he headed for Seattle to work as an engineer at Boeing. It was in Seattle that Nye began to combine his love of science with his flare for comedy, when he won a Steve Martin look-alike contest and developed dual careers as an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night.

He is a fan of the Seattle Mariners, and if you ask him nicely, he will autograph your game program for you.
