The Super Mario Effect - Tricking Your Brain into Learning More | Mark Rober | TEDxPenn

When 50,000 of Mark Rober's 3 million NLblock subscribers participated in a basic coding challenge, the data all pointed to what Rober has dubbed the Super Mario Effect. The NLblock star and former NASA engineer describes how this data-backed mindset for life gamification has stuck with him along his journey, and how it impacts the ways he helps (or tricks) his viewers into learning science, engineering, and design. Mark Rober has made a career out of engineering, entertainment, and education. After completing degrees in mechanical engineering from Brigham Young University and the University of Southern California, Rober joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2004. In his nine years as a NASA engineer, seven of which were on the Mars rover Curiosity team, Rober worked on both the Descent Stage (the jet pack that lowered the Rover to the surface) and some hardware on the Rover top deck for collecting samples. In 2011, Rober’s iPad-based Halloween costume helped launch both his creative costume company, Digital Dudz, and his NLblock channel, which now boasts 3 million subscribers and 400 million views. His videos focus on creative ideas and science- and engineering-based pranks and activities. Rober is a regular guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Today, he does research and development work for a large technology company in Northern California, where he lives with his wife and son. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Bit coin is on quite the run, with little sign of stopping.

The best teacher I've ever had has homework weighted at 10% of our final grade, quizzes at 20%, and tests at 70%. Essentially, we're not punished for making mistakes while learning, so we don't have to worry about our grade until test time comes around. And the students that buy into his methods do amazing on tests.

wow, getting great grades just felt so much a pressure... it's crazy, but if I'm learning piano, there's no punishment, for instance, I'm just playing piano, so if I make a mistake playing Moonlight Sonata there's no consequences, I'm actually learning from it, while it's hard, the motivation and passion is still if I was force to learn/while being tested/graded, then the pressure of learning becomes more of chore rather learning

Dude I would so love to see something of this... Take what he said, and implement it to some junior school, do some human research. . This could revolutionize how we teach our children stuff.. It happened to me recently, I wanted to solve some problem where I had think about pressures and measurements and I didn't have knowledge of it, and I didn't even know where to look at, and then I realized it was something I would learn in school if I had a teacher who explained stuff to me in a manner I could cared about.. Now I have a child, and the manner of how someone educate my child matters to me the most..

The psychology behind that is. If the person who is losing point, gets more serious and starts to "think". And those who have the intension to win think little more with dedication and completes the goal in fewer steps. And those who are really not interested in this got a chance to think "why the heck I am doing this?" and just leave the playground.

I personally feel like "the bloons effect" would've been a better name since in mario, you fall down a pit, lose a life, and better your strategy for next time. In bloons (tower defense) you fail, either quit out to the home menu or lose the entire game and then you know you need to "sharpen" that strategy or try a new one. I mean, just look at youtuber ISAB. He often does "one monkey only" challenges with some support. When he loses the first time, he doesn't just declare the challenge impossible, he changes up the strategy for a chance that he can beat the DDT's. Not to mention how in mario, there is very little room to make a challenge. My personal experience with challenges follows this cycle: Step 1. Spend around a year thinking of a challenge. Step 2. Think up a challenge. Step 3. Realize the challenge sucks. Step 4. Spend another couple months thinking of a challenge. Step 5. Procrastinate on doing that challenge. Step 6. Realize someone made a video on the challenge. Step 7. Give up. But with bloons, due to the amount of combinations of towers and the amount of strategies out there, it's easy. For example, the other day I was playing BTD6 and I wanted to do a challenge. Specifically ice monkeys only as icicle impale is the most efficient tower in the game in my opinion. (Rememeber, efficient. It's not the best, but you get the most bang for your buck.) So I tried it, quit to the home menu because I almost lost, and tried again. And I ended up getting extremely far! The only reason I got to round 98 and not 100 is because I should've gotten absolute zero. But I did it. I proved everyone who thinks that ice Monkey is terrible wrong. I (nearly) achieved my goal.

In case your wondering, I think I could win if I sell some extra ice monkeys I don't need to get absolute zero and freeze all the MOABs at the right spot.

Now I'm absolutely excited to do better next time, this really helped getting rid of my unproductive fear I've had towards my next semester and a module that's coming up next week! What's funny is that I knew about this concept already, but didn't understand how to adopt the concept to my learning process. Thank you so much for putting it into words and showing examples for how I can do it, hopefully I'll pass all the exams I failed last year!

It's not just about ignoring failure. It's also about not being obsessed with success. These form a core belief in the ancient and wise GITA - an instruction manual for living -- which many consider the best philosophy ever.
