COUNTY NEWS RELEASE
Join Mesa Public Library and POV the (PBS award-winning nonfiction film series) for a free online documentary film screening of Bill Nye: Science Guy!
The former star of the popular 90s kid’s TV show has turned his focus to adults, and he’s on a mission to stop the spread of anti-scientific thinking. This event is free to the public and will be livestreamed via Zoom 6:30-8:15 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15. Runtime 1h 41m.
The film, by David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg, chronicles the life of TV’s favorite scientist and his later work engaging with those who deny climate change, evolution, and a science-based world view. The film poses important questions about the role of evidence-based science education in public life: What are our obligations as citizens, both nationally and globally, to discuss and act upon scientific research about climate change?
What is the best way to reach people who disagree with you on questions that are vital to the public interest? POV and the library system see documentary film as a powerful tool for fostering learning, dialogue, and civic engagement.
Anyone interested in attending the live film screening (available online only) should register through the event calendar at LosAlamosLibrary.org. A Zoom link will be sent to your email account. No Zoom account is necessary to register. For assistance, call (505) 662-8267.
