Nick Householder sent an audition tape to the hit Discovery Channel show Mythbusters.
He wasn’t chosen. Not because his tape wasn’t good enough but because someone decided that the Navarre graduate would be better suited for a new show on the Science Channel called Street Science.
“I was incredibly excited about being a part of something new,” Householder said. “I went for Mythbusters because I loved the show growing up, but that didn’t mean it was the only thing I wanted to do. As a result, I got to be a part of something on the ground floor and express my creativity.”
Householder is no stranger to science. He’s always loved the topic, even starting a robotics club while in high school. In college, he helped design and build remote-control airplanes for international competition. Householder holds two degrees from Auburn, including a master’s in aerospace engineering. He now works as a civilian test engineer at Eglin.
