Marc de Vinck
Dexter F. Baker Professor of Practice in Creativity
Before coming to Lehigh, Marc de Vinck was director of product development at MAKE magazine and a member of the MAKE Technical Advisory board. He has written numerous posts on do-it-yourself science and technology on makezine.com, as well as articles and featured builds in the print version of MAKE. He speaks at events across the country. De Vinck previously worked in fields as diverse as traditional metal smith, illustrator, and 3D model maker. He thrives on the process of making and educating, with one of his greatest career accomplishments the implementation of Maker Faire's Learn to Solder program, which taught more than 10,000 people a lifelong skill and hopefully inspired many to realize they are makers. De Vinck’s interests include micro-controllers, open source hardware, interactive art, and anything that uses technology in a unique way. He also enjoys great design, regardless of the medium. When he’s not developing a new product in his studio – a rare occurrence – he’s skiing, playing ice hockey, or out sailing with his family.
