Mark Rober

Mark Rober is known for his incredible builds and pranks he creates and posts on his successful YouTube channel, which boasts 29 million subscribers and averages over 60M views/month. In Summer 2022 Rober opened his secret lab, called CrunchLabs, and his exciting new products for kids by the same name, which sold out in under a week. The monthly subscription delivers original STEM toys (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and exclusive videos that entertain and teach STEM principles to kids ages 8-12+ and every month a lucky winner will find in their build box a "Platinum Ticket" to win an expenses-paid trip for 4 to hang out with Mark at his secret lab. CrunchLabs is a massive, Willy Wonka-style factory of creativity in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the team creates each original, buildable engineering toy and the super fun (and science-packed) videos from scratch. Rober is also known for his YouTube videos including glitter bombing phone scammers, making mazes for squirrels in his backyard, the world’s most giant t-shirt cannon and more. In 2020 he hosted a Livestream with Jimmy Kimmel called Color the Spectrum, which raised over $3M to support Autistic Adults in their communities. In 2019 Rober co-founded #TeamTrees alongside fellow YouTube creator MrBeast, which raised $20 million to plant 20 million trees. In late 2021 they followed up with #TeamSeas , which raised $30 million to clean up 30 million pounds of trash and plastic from rivers, beaches and oceans.
