Chances are, you’ve already got the theme song stuck in your head. Bill Nye inspired millions through his television show that made kids excited to learn. Now he takes on a new challenge, embarking on a quest to encourage science advocacy and education. With intimate and exclusive access, this is a behind-the-scenes portrait of "the Science Guy" as he inspires millennials to participate in STEAM, a curriculum based on five specific disciplines—science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. With wonder and whimsy, the film follows Bill’s journey to change the world...with science. BILL! BILL! BILL!
