Event description

Description

Ross Atkin is a designer and engineer based in East London with a strong interest in making design and engineering more visible and accessible to young people.

He was part of the ‘Fix Team’ on the BBC2’s flagship maker-focused program ‘The Big Life Fix‘ and started The Crafty Robot to radically lower the barriers for young people to getting into creative making. Ross’s work has been displayed in the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year exhibition and Fast Company Magazine’s Innovation By Design Awards.

He is also recognised internationally as an expert on the Internet of Things having been invited to speak on the subject at high profile technology and design conferences from San Francisco and Austin to Johannesburg and Beirut.

Ross is interested in digital technology to support access for people in public spaces. He maintains an independent practice where he works on projects than combine at least two of these areas for clients like Marshalls, Transport for London and Stannah.

Join him on Monday 31 July where he will discuss and give valuable insight into his design practice and his approach to making and new technologies.
