Since his first viral YouTube video in 2011 —a 50 second segment that captured the iPad Halloween costume he created while still a JPL engineer— Mark Rober has sculpted the video influencer landscape with his creativity, enthusiasm, and technical chops to reach a massive and growing audience.  The public's appetite for his "New Ideas, Science, Engineering" approach to GlitterBombs, Squirrel Mazes, Egg-Drop-From-Space videos and more has placed Mark in the stratosphere of YouTube science communicators.

Come join us for a conversation with Mark about his trajectory from JPL, to Apple, and beyond!
