Bill Nye the Science Guy joins us for one unforgettable afternoon to read and sign his new book, Everything All at Once.

Everyone has an inner nerd just waiting to be awakened by the right passion. In Everything All at Once, Bill Nye will help you find yours. With his call to arms he wants you to examine every detail of the most difficult problems that look unsolvable that is, until you find the solution. Bill shows you how to develop critical thinking skills and create change, using his everything all at once approach that leaves no stone unturned.

Whether addressing climate change, the future of our society as a whole, personal success, or stripping away the mystery of fire walking, there are certain strategies that get results: looking at the world with relentless curiosity, being driven by a desire for a better future, and being willing to take the actions needed to make change happen. Moving through the lessons he learned as a full-time engineer at Boeing, a stand-up comedian, CEO of The Planetary Society, and of course, as Bill Nye The Science Guy, we'll learn how to tackle big problems the Bill Nye way.

We have the power to make real change. Join him in -- dare we say it -- changing the world.

 

Joining Bill in conversation is Bay Area Science Festival director, Kishore Hari—don't miss it!
