Mark Rober – Tricking Your Brain into Learning More, Working at NASA and Learning from Failure

Mark Rober has made a career out of engineering, entertainment, and education. After completing degrees in mechanical engineering from Brigham Young University and the University of Southern California, Rober joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2004. In his nine years as a NASA engineer, seven of which were on the Mars rover Curiosity team, Rober worked on both the Descent Stage (the jet pack that lowered the Rover to the surface) and some hardware on the Rover top deck for collecting samples. In 2011, Rober’s iPad-based Halloween costume helped launch both his creative costume company, Digital Dudz, and his YouTube channel. His videos focus on creative ideas and science- and engineering-based pranks and activities. Rober is a regular guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! In addition to monthly YouTube videos he does research and development work for a large technology company in Northern California where he lives with his wife and son.
