The Distinguished Lecture Series program introduces the UNT community to the excellence of world-class speakers whose messages enhance learning outside the classroom.
Nye is a science educator best known for his PBS show “Bill Nye The Science Guy,” which won 18 Emmy Awards over its five year run. Nye studied mechanical engineering at Cornell University, and went on to work for The Boeing Company in Seattle, where he developed a hydraulic pressure resonance suppressor that is still used today in the Boeing 747. In 2000, Nye developed sundials that were used in the NASA Mars Rover missions, and from 2005 to 2010 served as vice president and executive director of The Planetary Society.
