About this Speaker

Steven Jacobs has 52 years’ experience in science and science education. He is a practicing scientist, educator, author, and media personality; but his creative involvement at Discovery Channel and National Geographic Television as Chief Scientist is perhaps his most beloved role. Affectionately dubbed “Jake” by friends, students and colleagues, he has built a career of making science fun and accessible. Jake, apprentice to Don Herbert, television's original Mr. Wizard, is also science writer for Discovery's MythBusters and other Discovery productions. Dr. Jacobs holds the title of “Wizard IV”; presented to him by the Royal Institution of Great Britain

With three university degrees, nearly two decades of teaching, plus experience with fifteen media production companies including Nickelodeon, Paramount Television, Science Channel, Discovery Health, National Geographic, FOX Television, Disney, National Public Radio (NPR), and the Smithsonian Institution under his belt, Jake was an ideal fit as consultant for many programs produced by Discovery Communications.

Along with NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino, Jake is the on-air host of National Geographic Television’s Known Universe. You can also find Wizard IV at many social media sites under the banner of Midnight Science Club.
