Brown Lecture Board has invited Bill Nye to speak at Brown on December 5th. Just so we can ensure the servers will crash (just kidding BLB), we thought we’d remind you that tickets will become available tomorrow, November 19 at 12 p.m.
To those of you who remember sitting in long lines waiting for tickets in Kasper Multipurpose Room, you’ll be happy to know that you can get your tickets online this time around. Go to this website then to ensure that you—and only you, since it’s one ticket per person—will have a chance to see the Science Guy in the flesh. And there’s hope if you don’t nab a ticket tomorrow. It seems there will be three separate sales: one tomorrow at noon, and then two more at the same time on Wednesday and Thursday.
You don’t need Blog to convince you to spend a couple minutes on a website to get the chance to see this man grace the Salomon stage. He is arguably the most recognizable living scientist in America, a country that rarely grants its researchers celebrity status. And more than any other generation, we grew up on him. “Bill Nye the Science Guy” ran on PBS between 1993 and 1998 and was played in our grade school science classrooms for years after. Without Bill, we never would have known exactly how much science rules.
