STILLWATER, Okla. – A science icon, who had a popular television series in the 1990s, will be visiting a local university Thursday evening.

Bill Nye is a comedian, mechanical engineer and author but is best known for his show, “Bill Nye, The Science Guy,” which aired from 1993 to 1998.

Nye will be visiting Oklahoma State University on Thursday, Feb. 20.

Brandon Mitts, Allied Arts & Special Events manager, said, “People love Bill Nye because he’s approachable and they’ve seen his TV show, but I think they’re going to be surprised with the passion he has about science and its impact on the future. He’ll talk a lot about why science is important and the ways we can get behind it.”

Nye will give a 45 minute keynote address inside Gallagher-Iba Arena, followed by a 45 minute question and answer session.

Admission is free for OSU students, faculty and staff with a valid OSU ID.
