Mark Rober Finally Enters Roblox
And the gaming world can't stop talking about it. 🤷🏻♀️
If you've been following Mark for a while on YouTube, you already know the kind of content he makes. On Roblox, he's taking it to the next level by teaching his audience all about rocketry. 🚀
Tubefilter states, “The Roblox world is titled “Build a Rocket VS Mark Rober,” and it’s affiliated with CrunchLabs, Rober’s STEM-oriented subscription box. The rocket-building world will further the mission of CrunchLabs by bringing scientific education into Roblox. Players who access the new server will gather and combine materials, which they will use to build rockets that can help them navigate a series of challenges.”
👉 Here's what a user says.
Mark has even invited several Roblox gamers and creators to experience this virtual game. Find out more about it from a Crunch Labs video. 👇

First Acts: Creatives Share Their (Very) Early Work
This piece by Matt Alagiah on It's Nice That is one of the most beautiful things we've read this week. 😍
Matt spoke to 4 illustrators and artists to understand their early work and journey, and while all those artists share their early work, what makes this piece heartwarming is the personal stories the artists share.
If there's one thing you should read today, let it be this.
