When we make stuff, stuff happens. Acclaimed "Science Guy" Bill Nye examines the everyday stuff of our lives and the far-reaching effects our actions have on the planet.  Teachers can utilize the keen delivery of Bill Nye to help students understand human interaction with the environment, the ways in which our own technology can help or hurt the environment, and actions we can implement to improve our use of resources.   

Bill Nye climbs up to the attic to uncover environmental hazards happening in one of the least visited areas of the home. The program surveys such items as fiberglass insulation, moth balls, and solar panels to share ways the attic can become more environmentally-friendly by conserving and producing clean energy and choosing healthier alternatives to harmful products. Green options for the removal of pests like rats and termites are also considered in the presentation.
