Between 1993 and 1998, he hosted the children’s science show Bill Nye the Science Guy. Most children who were interested in science were inspired by the show.

The electricity that turns on lights in your home is made by power plants. Most power plants use big machines called generators to make electrons by twirling wire in a magnet.
According to Nye, Electricity is the flow of electrons, and electrons are very tiny charged particles.
Adding that, electricity moves 0.3 meters (1 foot) every nanosecond (one billionth of a second).
Nye has published several science-themed children’s books in addition to his television shows. In 2014, he wrote Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation, which was followed the following year by Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.
He released “Everything All at Once in 2017, promising to demonstrate how “thinking like a nerd is the key to changing yourself and the world around you.,
