In honor of...#3...

Next we come to Bill Nye, master of ceremonies at Nye labs.

Bill is the first of the media scientists since Mr. Wizard whose background actually includes a degree in science. Nye's show Bill Nye the Science Guy has been a favorite in my classroom for a number of years now, but I'm nudging it toward retirement as the segments are starting to show their age. Next up, I'll need to check out The Eyes of Nye, his new show.

Some clips of the mack daddy Nye himself...

Thanks for posting these videos. I love Bill Nye! His facial expressions, those funny sound effects... a fun scienceshow host is an important aspect of science education for kids.

You have a fun and creative style of writing. I would like to exchange blog links with you. I write a science blog called Fresh Brainz mainly about biology.

Cheers!
