Bill Nye The Science Guy To Appear on 'Numb3rs'
"Bill Nye the Science Guy" demonstrates how math and science work together when he guest stars on Numb3rs Friday, Dec. 16, on CBS. Nye portrays a professor in the Engineering Department of Cal Sci who helps Charlie (David Krumholtz) and Dr. Larry Fleinhart (Peter MacNicol) recreate a backdraft in order to help the FBI determine who has been starting a series of deadly fires in Los Angeles.
"We're thrilled to have Bill Nye as a guest star on 'Numb3rs,'" says Executive Producer and Co-Creator Cheryl Heuton. "His show, Bill Nye the Science Guy, proved that TV could entertain while explaining principles of science -- and do it in a format that children, teens and adults enjoyed. Bill's tireless dedication to boosting math and science education in America has been a great example to us as well. For many of our viewers, the idea that math can be fun and cool isn't a new idea -- they learned it first from Bill."
