Bill Nye is every kid's favorite person. Those days of walking into the classroom and seeing your science teacher putting an episode of "Bill Nye The Science Guy" into the VHS player made for victorious, thrilling memories that can never be trumped.

We all know Nye is the coolest guy ever, so it may come as no surprise that he was also a pretty cool science geek when he was in high school. The scientist and TV host posted a Throwback Thursday photo to his Instagram earlier this week with the caption "#TurnUpForScience." In all honesty, we never looked as pleased as he does in science class -- unless "Bill Nye" was playing, of course!

Also, let's never ever forget this "Bill Nye" Nirvana parody.
