WINNIPEG — Bill Nye the Science Guy will hold court next week with students from 64 Manitoba schools.
The American celebrity science educator is viewing videos as part of the “Take 3 for Climate Justice” at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on March 3.
Student teams were tasked with creating three-minute videos about climate action. The students will take part in a day-long event with workshops, activities and presentations happening throughout the museum about climate change and its impact on human rights.
Nye will view the top three videos during his keynote presentation and inspire students to continue combatting climate change.
Nye can currently be seen on his Netflix show, “Bill Nye Saves the World.”
A sold-out event the evening of March 3, organized by Science First, will see Nye speak at the Burton Cummings Theatre.
