Kyle's goal as a science communicator is to use popular culture to teach science in a fun and digestible way. He gives presentations at schools and conventions across the country, using enthusiasm and passion to help get another generation excited about science, technology, engineering, and math.
In 2016, Kyle hosted MythBusters: The Search on the Science Channel, the highest rated show on the network that year. This was the aftermath of turning a water heater into a rocket. No really.
Kyle created the popular online science show Because Science, which has garnered over 150 million views since its inception and launched a YouTube channel that gained 100,000 subscribers in just 9 days. In the show, Kyle finds the secret science in our favorite fandoms. The biology of dragons? Sure. The physics of Thor's hammer? You bet.
