This press release was received this afternoon from the Obama for America campaign:

Hi guys, hope you’re doing well.

Wanted to put on your plate that Bill Nye, known for his TV show as “The Science Guy,” will travel to Brevard County for events in support of President Obama’s reelection.

After a tour of Dynamic Systems, Controls and Mechatronics at FIT, Mr. Nye will participate at a STEM roundtable on Tuesday morning at FIT. While not an OFA event, it is part of Mr. Nye’s trip in support of the campaign. The roundtable promises substantive discussion, with participants like:

WHAT: FIT Bill Nye tour and discussion, as part of his support for OFA’s Vote Now!
WHO: Bill Nye, Students, Faculty, OFA-Florida Supporters and Volunteers
WHEN: Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012, 10am-12pm
