Widely known for his Emmy award-winning educational series, “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” airing on PBS and incorporated into K-12 science curricula across the country, Mr. Nye is also a licensed mechanical engineer with previous consulting assignments ranging from the U.S. Dept. of Justice to projects regarding avionics communications systems. An inventor with several patents for consumer and educational products, Mr. Nye received a bachelor of science, mechanical engineering, from Cornell University.
“Bill Nye is not only an excellent communicator with an extensive history helping nonexperts understand complex scientific concepts, he is a critical thinker with a strong background in the physical nature of our technology,” says Jim Wiese, Activeion CEO. “Activeion has a revolutionary product that we want people to understand and use, and now, the story of our technology will be effectively communicated to the public in a powerful way by this recognized and respected science educator.”
“The promise of the technology is what attracted me to Activeion,” says Bill Nye. “It’s an example of how we can use our scientific knowledge and manufacturing expertise to do more with less-and improve the lives of people everywhere.”
