Flash back to the 1990’s. Everyone’s wearing neon, crop tops and overalls and listening to the Spice Girls, Nirvana and Lauryn Hill. And from 1993 to 1998 every kid I have ever run into who lived during the 90’s remembered watching “Bill Nye the Science Guy” and was entertained while learning about science and the world around them.
