Bill Nye is an amazing guy!
What's he up to now?
The Bill Nye Science shows were WAY ahead of their time. His show is dedicated to kids and keeping them engaged in learning scientific principles and keeping kids’ minds open to possibilities.
We happened across this show at home when our kids were young and they loved it! They learned things they’d never heard about and were fascinated. They learned things they’d never heard about and were fascinated. They also found out more about subjects they had already gotten a taste of in their classrooms and were amazed.
It was a really cool show that captured kids’ attention and kept it the entire time. After it was over, they were still interested in the subject matter enough to ask more questions and check out library books that dealt with science. In their middle school years, teachers use some of the Bill Nye videos to enhance learning in the classroom.
Another very innovative aspect of this series is that they showed kids as scientists and doing experiments that were really interesting. It was like a reality show in some ways - kids demonstrating scientific principles
and real scientists sharing their passion for their field of science. They did a very good job of repetition and demonstration that helped the kids learn and retain information.
Now that they are in high school and college, my kids still remember specific episodes and clips from the show and things that they were inspired to try as a result of watching Bill Nye the Science Guy.
MythBusters is another great show and kids and adults alike enjoy that show as well. But Bill Nye is the best around at engaging kids and teaching them scientific principles.Barry's Response
