NATE BALL

THURSDAY, JANUARY 23; 7 PM

NATE BALL will introduce his two children’s books: Alien In My Pocket: Blast Off, Book 1 and Alien In My Pocket: The Science Unfair: Book 2. The chapter books include the zany adventures of Zack and his 3 inch tall Alien friend, Amp, who had curiously crash-landed through Zack’s bedroom window. In Blast Off, Zack and Amp create a soda bottle rocket to try to get Amp back to his planet. When that doesn’t work, we get to Book 2, The Science Unfair, where Zack and Arp are trying to create a science project that will be so good that Zack will get an A during the school science fair. But when it turns out to be too good, it brings Zack a whole different kind of trouble!

Nate Ball is the host of the Emmy and Peabody Award Winning PBS reality shows Design Squad and Design Squad Nation. He has a Master’s Degree in mechanical engineering and is co-founder of Atlas Devices.
