Science educator Bill Nye visited Mizzou March 15 to lecture at the MU Life Sciences & Society Symposium, Decoding Science. The popular scientist, engineer, comedian, author and host of the Emmy-winning 1990s TV show Bill Nye the Science Guy addressed a sold-out, all-ages crowd in Jesse Auditorium. He encouraged young people in the audience to embrace the joy of discovery and to change the world. He also bonded with fellow engineer and bow tie enthusiast Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin.
Other speakers at the symposium, held March 10-15, included Rebecca Skloot, author of the best-seller The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Barbara Kline Pope from the National Academy of Sciences and filmmaker Randy Olson, author of Don’t Be Such a Scientist.
