Fall Sustainability Series | Bill Nye: Science Guy, Sept. 5

The Fall Sustainability Series presents Bill Nye: Science Guy on Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Athena Cinema Downtown.

“Remember Bill Nye, the man who engaged children and adults alike with science? Well, the beloved American icon continues his quest to bring the wonders of science to the public. Bill Nye is a man on a mission: to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular children’s show Bill Nye The Science Guy is now the CEO of The Planetary Society, an organization founded by Bill’s mentor Carl Sagan, where he’s launching a solar propelled spacecraft into the cosmos and advocating for the importance of science, research, and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access – as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy – this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based worldview,” says the Athena website.

Athena Cinema, Environmental Studies, and the Alden Library present the sixth year of the Sustainability Film Series, working in partnership with many sponsors. These free Wednesday screenings of documentaries are open to the public.
