Featured Panelist: Mathew Lippincott

Mathew Lippincott has collaborated across the boundaries of art, science, and education to execute projects as diverse as the city of Portland’s emergency sanitation plan, signage for the US’s first edibly landscaped public park, and a space suit you can make in your living room. He has shown artwork at the CDC, spoken at the USGS & EPA, written a new chapter to the Uniform Plumbing Code, and is currently in a cooperative agreement with NASA.
A founding member Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science, Mathew has worked to translate environmental monitoring prototypes into manufactured kits and written and illustrated guides to environmental pollution for six years. Unpowered flight is Mathew’s lifelong passion. He has been teaching people to make and fly DIY kites and balloons for eight years, and his Balloon Mapping Kits made Kickstarter’s best of 2012.
