Bill Nye the Science Guy to Speak at MSE
In the five years that his eponymous show, Bill Nye
the Science Guy, was on television, Nye

scientist/engineer/inventor, once employed by Boeing, had
made a career switch to being a comedy writer and
Nye's topic will be climate change when he visits the
Homewood campus on Tuesday, Oct. 23, as
the sixth speaker in the 2007 Milton S.

James Olmos, on Nov. 8, and a performance by the political
satire group the Capitol Steps, on Nov. 2.
The theme of the symposium is Renewing American Culture:
