STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Bill Nye will visit Oklahoma State University as a keynote speaker this Thursday.

The pop culture science icon will speak at 7 p.m. on February 20 at the Gallagher-Iba Arena.

According to OSU Communications, Nye's speech will focus on "encouraging his audience to change the world." The event will include a keynote address followed by an audience question and answer session.

Tickets are available to the public for $10, and they go on sale at 4 p.m. February 20 at the Gallagher-Iba Arena ticket booth. OSU students, faculty and staff members may attend the event for free with a valid OSU ID. Doors open at 6 p.m.

OSU students have a chance to win two tickets to dine with Nye and the OSU Speaker's Board. To enter, students should tweet a Vine video portraying them demonstrating science to @OSUspeakers.

Allied Arts and Special Events Manager Brandon Mitts said the board chose Nye because he is a pop culture icon who has a strong appeal with various age groups and a strong message.

"People love Bill Nye because he's approachable and they've seen his TV show, but I think they're going to be surprised with the passion he has about science and its impact on the future," Mitts said. "He'll talk a lot about why science is important and the ways we can get behind it."

Nye is famous for his show, "Bill Nye, The Science Guy," which ran from 1993 to 1998.
