Community Reviews

Nutrition BNTSG is okay

Not one of his best, but still very enjoyable and educational.

learned a lot!

I learned a lot from this Nutrition episode of Bill Nye - highly recommend! I thought the parts where they show how they measure calories, fat, and minerals in food were fascinating!


A good way to learn about science without putting out all the big words for the kids. All Bill Nye's follow the same format with experiments to try at home, silly songs and funny anecdotes scattered throughout the episode. I really recommend these to anyone interested in science.


really fun to read.

Made it fun

Go bill nye

Creative Science

Bill Nye the science guy is a amazing way to teach elementary school students science in a fun way.

Awesome Science...and Comedy

I've been a fan of Bill Nye way before he became a Science Guy...check out an old improv show called Almost Live! sometime...but he did really good things for science education. Although the skits are sometimes a little dated (see an early mobile phone in one episode, for example), the science is solid and the comedy is real.
