Engineers Week 2012 kicks off this year with a free public lecture by Bill Nye, the "Science Guy," Sept. 21 in Stephens Auditorium (7 p.m., doors open at 6:15 p.m.). Nye, formerly a mechanical engineer at Boeing, parlayed his stand-up comic skills into an Emmy Award-winning educational TV show on PBS Kids in the 1990s. Nye now serves as executive director of the Planetary Society and has regular host and guest appearances on several TV shows. Expect a blend of entertainment and science in his talk, "You Can Change the World." Contributed photo.
