With more than 28 Emmys and a slew of other prestigious awards, Disney's resident way-cool scientist knows how to get kids fired up about science. Whether you're learning about earth science or engaging in a complex discussion about genetics, Bill Nye's enthusiasm for all things science is contagious. Not all inventions are carefully planned - some of the most valuable inventions come about by accident! Bill Nye examines the process of inventing.
In this episode of the series, Bill Nye discusses how inventions can change the world. Many devices were invented in response to problems, but some inventions, like X-rays, occurred by accident. BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY: INVENTIONS looks at how inventions happen with his special guest Samuel L. Jackson. He suggests that young science students can invent, given the right idea and some motivation. Each episode features an experiment that can be done at home, and the music video this time is "Waiting to Invent" by "Eli Whitney Houston."
