Bill Nye the Science Guy

Momentum (#137)

From the fictional "Nye Labs" -- where there's always something bubbling in a beaker -- to far above the earth, Bill Nye takes science out of the classroom, then adds adventure and his own inimitable zaniness to prove just how integral science is to everyday life. Working alongside a diverse cast of children, science experts and celebrity guests, Nye introduces and explores each program's main topic using studio demonstrations and experiments. The demonstrations use inexpensive, safe household items to enable viewers to follow along at home or in the classroom. [27 minutes] Closed Captioning
