Bill Nye’s birthdate is November 27, 1955, and his birth sign is Sagittarius. He spent his early childhood in Washington D. C where he was born.
His parents played an active role in World War II with his mom, Jacqueline Jenkins Nye serving as a codebreaker who broke the codes used by the Japanese and German military during the war while his dad, Edwin Darby “Ned” Nye also served during the war as a contractor.
He was the contractor that constructed an airstrip on Wake Island.
Nye received a scholarship to attend Sidwell Friends for his high school education following his elementary school and Junior high education at Lafayette Elementary School and Alice Deal Junior High.
As a child, he had a deep passion for science, so he relocated to Ithaca to join Cornell University New York and takes classes in sciences at Sibley School of Mechanical Aerospace Engineering.
In 1977 he completed his studies there and obtained a BS in mechanical engineering.
Shortly after graduation in 1977, Nye joined the Boeing Corporation which produces and sells aircraft, satellites, rotorcrafts, missiles, and rockets.
There, he innovated a hydraulic resonance suppressor tube which is used for the construction of Boeing 747 airplanes.
He also spent time at Sundstrand Data Control near Seattle around this time. He gave entertainment a chance in 1986 after he tried a few times to get a chance to be part of the NASA astronauts training program but was turned down.
His first engagement was in standup comedy which saw him making impressions of Steve Martin at events.
While he found it rewarding getting others to roar with laughter, Nye didn’t leave his engineering duties at Boeing.
He continued to juggle between comedy and working on business jet navigation systems and laser gyroscope systems – which were the activities he had in hand then.
One lucky night, as he was performing an open mic show, a famous comedian, John Keister discovered him and introduced him to Almost Live, a sketch comedy TV show.
Nye had to give up his job in 1986 to focus more on the entertainment.
He began acting and writing on the famous TV show and won the audience the day he comically described what happens when you eat a marshmallow immersed in liquid nitrogen.
After a few stints on the show which consistently increased his fan base, Nye created his own show titled Bill Nye the Science Guy in 1993.
Similarly, the show found enormous success and its prominence made it one of the most-watched in the U.S.
At the end of the show in 1998, Nye started another exploit named The Eye of Nye which also tackled science subjects.
Since the 2000s, Nye has worked on numerous media schemes including TV appearances with science themes.
He is known as one of the loudest voices speaking up for science and has also written three science books including Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World, amongst others.
