Class Overview

Learn Mark Rober’s complete engineering process
While many know Mark Rober as the wildly popular YouTuber and the world’s #1 STEM educator, Mark spent the first decade of his career as an engineer at NASA working on the Mars Curiosity Rover and at Apple working on advanced technologies like VR and self-driving cars. With this expertise, combined with his unmatched creativity, Mark has dreamt up and built some of the world’s most creative inventions. He’s built an Automatic Bullseye Dartboard, a Rocket Powered Golf Club, the World's Largest Super Soaker, a Glitter Bomb Package to stop porch pirates, a Playing Card Machine Gun, an Automatic Strike Bowling Ball, a Ninja Squirrel Obstacle Course, and a whole lot more. For the past 12 years, Mark has shared these creative engineering projects to YouTube, now to over 23 million subscribers and over 3 billion views, helping millions of people around the world discover the power of science and engineering. In this class, Mark Rober teaches you everything he knows, so you too can use science and engineering to bring your own creative ideas to life. During class, Mark brings you into his studio and shares with you his entire creative engineering process from start to finish. Follow along with Mark as he brainstorms, designs, and builds three brand new creative inventions completely from scratch, starting from how he finds his viral build ideas, all the way through bringing the final builds to life. For the first build of class, Mark introduces his proven, step-by-step engineering design process – Brainstorm, Research, Prototype, Final Build — and teaches each step in detail. This first build focuses on mechanical engineering and is related in some way to the category of food. Follow along with Mark to create your own food-related build, whether that's a machine that cooks you breakfast at push of a button, a device to more quickly cut your vegetables; or anything else you can dream up! For the second build of class, Mark dives deep into electrical engineering, including how to use an Arduino microcontroller. You’ll learn how to build electrical circuits, utilize sensors, and control effectors to create your own electronics. Even if you don’t have any experience with electronics or coding, you’ll be able to follow along and create your own electronic inventions. This time, builds will be within the category of art. For the third build of class, Mark teaches his most advanced engineering methods, including Raspberry Pi, custom printed circuit boards, 3D design in CAD, 3D printing, thermal engineering, and much more. Using these tools, Mark creates a build in the category of habits. You can follow along to build something that enforces a good habit or helps you break a bad habit. Along the way, Mark explains everything that he’s doing and thinking in detail — every idea, decision, tool, and technique. There’s no where else you can get this level of intimate access to Mark Rober’s brain and process. By the end of the class, you’ll know everything you need to bring your own creative inventions to life. You’ll develop a complete engineering toolkit that you can use for the rest of your life.

Incredibly practical and accessible. Mark is a genius at distilling things down and clearly differentiating between critical, secondary, and "nice to have." Equal to that is his ability to demonstrate and explain. I've never learned so much so fast! Thanks Mark!

Kathy Rutherford

I learned a phenomenal amount... sooooo inspiring and insightful! My thought process and design muscles are light years ahead of where I was. A really great experience for me!

Mark is just the best in explaining and sharing his knowledge. His information is so helpful and he doesn't want to keep anything to himself, he shares everything that's what I like about him and about this class.

I have been watching Mark Rober for some time now and I have always been fascinated by him. Even though I had no idea how he did what he was doing I wanted to be just like him and now how he does it. This class is making my dreams come true.

Tommy Warren

Well above what I was expecting. The way Mark breaks down the engineering process, it really helps you to become a better engineer/builder. It's very evident that he put a lot of time and thought into this course.

This has really inspired me and set me on a path towards engineering as my future, so thank you, Mark, for allowing that to happen.

Jonathan Purdy

I took this class to see a different way of doing the stuff that I do already. I didn't expect to learn something completely new, and yet I did. I really enjoyed it.

Dustin Straw

I loved hearing Mark's insight on his creative process. He was a great teacher in that he explained his thoughts very well.

I really enjoyed Mark's way of teaching and peeking behind the curtain of how his builds are made and how he creates the story of his videos.

Izzy Banham-Hall

I liked learning Mark Rober's approach to engineering and seeing how he develops his projects in more detail than you get from his YouTube videos.

The #1 thing I got from this was motivation to do builds again! I feel so excited about this again, and that is 100% because of this experience. So THANK YOU for that.


Mark Rober explained everything in so much depth! I felt fully immersed.
