Bill Nye at Homestead National Monument

On Sunday, September 23rd Bill Nye "The Science Guy" visited the Homestead Education Center to deliver a talk about sustainability. Bill Nye's appearance was part of a celebration marking the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Homestead Act. As science teachers we had to take the chance to go see Bill Nye in person!

Dave and I were also invited to put on a 30-minute presentation of science demonstrations to precede Bill Nye's speech. We are very thankful to the folks at the Homestead monument that asked us to participate in such an awesome event.  Mr. Nye drew a very large crowd of over 2,000 people to the education center that day. That's a little bigger than our normal audience of elementary students and, as many could probably tell, we were both a little nervous. We hope to have some pictures of our demonstrations up soon! A video of one of our demonstrations from today can be found on youtube.com, the Barrel Implosion.
