Mark Rober

CrunchLabs Founder

“The best kind of learning occurs when you don’t realize you’re learning. The skills you learn through FIRST® can help you not just in high school and college, but super importantly in your career. That’s also what I love about FIRST, everyone has the chance to go pro.”

NASA engineer-turned-YouTube creator Mark Rober from CrunchLabs understands firsthand the importance of STEM learning and the opportunities it creates. Through watching his nephews participate in FIRST, he has witnessed the vast impact that the FIRST programs and community can have on young person’s skills, abilities, and confidence. Hear more from Mark about how every kid can go pro through FIRST.
