Bill Nye—the quirky, energetic, bow-tied science guy from the hit educational show—spent the 1990s winning over the hearts and minds of students with the goal of helping them see that "science is cool."

South by Southwest is more branded than ever—whether attendees are happy about it is another story—and that means brand activations are everywhere.
If you've been to South by Southwest Interactive anytime in the past four years, you may have gone by the Mashable House. The media company's Austin, Texas, digs, now a staple of the festival, serves as a way for the digital-only Mashable to interact with its readers and fans in the real world.

Case in point: The show released three posters, by creative agencies Arsonal and Buster Ink, at its activation within the Mashable House at South by Southwest in Austin today.
