Summary

Come face-to-face with amazing scientists doing some of the most amazing jobs on the planet. You’ll hear from a palaeontologist who discovers new species of Jurassic marine dinosaurs, what it’s like to hunt for volcanos from a volcanologist, how a conservation forensics expert from Australia’s one and only Taronga Zoo is saving threatened species and why a Boeing systems engineer fell in love with the exciting world of aerospace engineering. These uber-cool scientists will share their fascinating journeys of land, sea and fire.
