Two Decades of Bill Nye the Science Guy: An App-y Commemoration

Jun 19 2013 - 4:25am

Bill Nye the Science Guy turns 20 this year (as in the show, not the guy [1] — he's 57), and to mark two decades of demystifying the sciences, the official Bill Nye the Science Guy [2] (free) app has just been released in celebration.

Like the host himself, the app is quirky, zany, and full of fascinating science facts. Poke around Bill's desk to discover a MarsDial that reads time on the Red Planet, small Science Guy trinkets (bow tie mandatory), and eye-boggling optical illusions.

The app also features two games and a small archive of clips from the show's best episodes. The Planets and Magnetism demo some of our favorite experiments. Speaking of science investigations, the Science Guy app also has a built-in catalog of at-home experiments that can help explain concepts like static electricity and atmospheric pressure (great for kiddos!)

Download Bill Nye for mobile, give the app a try, and celebrate the Science Guy's 20th anniversary all year long by sending us your favorite moments from the show in the comments.
