Where: Union Station, 30 West Pershing Road, Kansas City, MO 64108

When: Tuesday, April 10th at 6:30pm

Bill Nye is a man on a mission: to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking across the world. The former star of the popular kids show “Bill Nye The Science Guy” is now the CEO of The Planetary Society, an organization founded by Bill’s mentor Carl Sagan, where he’s launching a solar propelled spacecraft into the cosmos and advocating for the importance of science, research, and discovery in public life. With intimate and exclusive access —as well as plenty of wonder and whimsy — this behind-the-scenes portrait of Nye follows him as he takes off his Science Guy lab coat and takes on those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based world view.

Join KCPT, Union Station, the KC STEM Alliance and KC March for Science Festival for a free screening of the new documentary followed by a conversation with local scientists.

Prior to the screening there will be demo’s by Science City educators, as well as a Bill Nye photobooth.

Event is family-friendly and free with RSVP.

Bill Nye: Science Guy Conversation Starters:

Bill deems the work of creationist Ken Ham and climate change deniers like Donald Trump and Shaun Hannity to be “anti-science.” Where have you encountered “anti-science”? What’s the difference between “anti-science” and scientific debate and the scientific method to weed out mistakes (i.e. things that were once thought to be the case by scientists, based on evidence available at the time, but were later proven to be wrong after more evidence became available)? Why do you think many Americans are disposed to take an anti-science stance?
