Description

An exclusive speaking event by Dr. Scott Sampson, author of “How to Raise a Wild Child” and President and CEO of Science World. Dr. Sampson will share personal insights from his bestselling book, How to Raise a Wild Child and discuss the importance of cultivating a meaningful connection between children and the natural world.

Scott Sampson is a dinosaur paleontologist, science communicator, and passionate advocate for reimagining cities as places where people and nature thrive.

Scott’s scientific research has focused on the ecology and evolution of Late Cretaceous dinosaurs, and he has conducted fieldwork in many countries, including Kenya, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Madagascar, Mexico, the United States, and Canada. He has published numerous scientific and popular articles, and regularly speaks to audiences of all ages on topics ranging from dinosaurs and education to sustainability and connecting kids with nature.

Scott has appeared in many television documentaries and served as a science advisor for a variety of media projects, most recently the BBC movie, Walking With Dinosaurs. He has also authored multiple books, including Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of Life, and How to Raise a Wild Child: The Art and Science of Falling in Love with Nature. However, he is perhaps best known as “Dr. Scott,” host and science advisor of the Emmy-nominated PBS KIDS television series Dinosaur Train, produced by the Jim Henson Company.

Scott was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and is thrilled to be back in his hometown. He lives in West Vancouver with his wife Toni and his daughter Jade.
