Scientist, engineer, comedian, author and inventor Bill Nye will be the next presenter in The University of Texas-Pan American’s Distinguished Speakers series on Tuesday, April 1, at 7:30 p.m. at the UTPA Fieldhouse.
For most of his life, Nye has entertained and helped the public to better appreciate the science that makes the world function through his humor and insightful presentations.
While growing up in Washington, D.C., Nye discovered his talent for making complicated subjects interesting and fun. As a popular high school tutor, Nye spent his afternoons and summers de-mystifying math and science for his classmates. His favorite hobby was taking apart his bicycle and then reassembling the parts just to investigate how simple machines operated.
