Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has been doing most of his life.
Arsema Mulugeta Assefa is one of just a few Ethiopian students who make up the larger international student body at Florida Tech.
Some highlights from Arsema's interview follow.
On why she wanted to come to the U.S. and how she plans to return to Ethiopia:
"For me personally, it was to do with the amount of freedom, and I was able to pursue what I wanted to do, who I wanted to be here. But most people leave (Ethiopia) and don't come back, and that's not my intention. I actually want to go back, make a difference in my country."
