SPEAKERS / PRESENTERS
Sean Pace, Art CRAWLER tech-art-lab shop truck
SEAN PACE
(Education Panel) A well established, savvy tech-artist and maker from North Carolina, Sean transplanted himself to Santa Cruz to dive into the Digital Arts & New Media (DANM) and OpenLab programs at UCSC. His monster ex-army shop truck, now beautifully outfitted as a mobile maker shop and research platform, is ready for art-tech community outreach. (It will be parked right at the front of our Festival grounds. You won't miss it.)
Steve Davee of MakerEd
STEVE DAVEE
(Education Panel) Steve Davee is "Maker Education Initiative" Director of Education and Communications at MakerEd.org, the big Maker Faire organization's teaching division. Steve has a background in Physics and Biochemistry and deep experience as a teacher and researcher. He has a particular interest in children's creative instincts and abilities, and founded CoLab Tinkering (tinkering camps and workshops). Steve is more often organizing and presenting other speakers in panels, but has agreed to share his uniquely informed perspective on the maker movement and its importance to arts & technology.
Ed Martinez, FAIM arts back into schools
EDWARD MARTINEZ III
(Education Panel) Ed Martinez is an artist, inventor, entrepreneur, environmental activist and marketing strategist. As an artist, and long time Santa Cruz local, he focuses on Up-Cycling materials in "trash to treasure" artwork. Ed has been a paramedic, a sailor with Greenpeace, radio show host and nonprofit development director. He is currently building Forage Arts Integration Modules (FAIM) to facilitate bringing the arts back into American schools from the bottom up.
Tom Padula, Solar-Rail
TOM PADULA
(Sustainability Panel) Tom is an engineer and tech industry professional turned entrepreneur. Inspired by the problematical challenge of the daily Santa Cruz County gridlocks on Hwy 1, he proposes to seduce many drivers out of the long parking lot time, with Solar Rail a passenger light-rail system from Watsonville to Davenport with many appropriate stops in between. With solar banks at the stops and state-of-the-art inductive recharging, this light-rail system will need no downtime to recharge its batteries. Tom's knowledge of the statistics and the technology is impressive, and he will most likely convince you that his system not only will work, but is better and cheaper than any other proposal for either the existing rails or for expanding Hwy 1. He also has an app for your phone, to book connecting transportation at the stop of your choice.
