WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

Bill Nye "The Science Guy" (Rebroadcast)

Twenty years ago, Bill Nye introduced a generation of young people to the wonders of natural science in his weekly television show, “Bill Nye The Science Guy.” Today, his lively, and at times comedic, style of explaining scientific facts remains an example for educators looking to engage kids in scientific studies. Bill Nye, a Washington native, joins Kojo to discuss how he got hooked on science and what he thinks can draw future generations into STEM fields.

Bill Nye, the former host of the popular television program "Bill Nye: The Science Guy," said Wednesday he didn't think his stance on creationism affected his ability to educate young scientists.

"Climate change should not be a political issue. Evolution should not be a political issue," he told host Kojo Nnamdi during his hour-long appearance on the Kojo Nnamdi show.

"I believe that ultimately in as little as five years ... this striking, thoughtless way of thinking - worldview- will be discredited to a greater extent," he said.
