Two Hybrid Founders
Jessi Baker and Izzy Lawrence have been friends since secondary school. They are both a hybrid of 'The Arts' and 'The Sciences' and have been remixing the two in everything they do since they were at school.
"Welcome! We are just getting started, but soon this site will be full of searchable hybrid ideas for teachers to use for their classes and an array of hybrid heroes and inspiring projects for students to explore and learn from. If you, like us, are a hybrid drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you!"
A true blend of design and technology, Jessi has a Masters degree in Engineering from Cambridge University and a Masters in Design from the Royal College of Art. She has worked in Creative Technology for large brands, startups, pop stars and celebrities. She is a co-founder of a new tech startup called Provenance, which mixes open data with story telling to help shoppers know more about the things they buy. She regularly teaches and speaks about interaction design and technology strategy.
Izzy is a creator, consultant and broadcaster working in science, tech, music and fashion. Her award winning blog shows her passion for remixing disciplines and making traditionally specialist areas appeal to a broad audience. Izzy read Biological Sciences at Oxford University and is currently a science consultant for The World Bank, an influencer for Hewlett Packard and on the tech team at Downing street.
