Scott Hocknull

Museum Interpretation Officer, aged 17. At 22, he became the youngest museum curator in Australia.
Scott has become a strong advocate for bringing the behind-the-scenes of museum collections and science to the public. Scott is passionate about applying new technologies to museum collections so that we can better interpret and demonstrate our natural and geo-heritage. He is currently working on new 3-D digital and virtual ways to better capture our fossil heritage in digital perpetuity whilst using this same technology to do robust research and engage the public by providing more in depth experiences with Australia’s vast fossil heritage. Scott is an advocate for strong regional and remote connections between museums, especially new and developing museums that house important fossil and geological collections. Scott has developed numerous multifaceted projects that bring together industry, philanthropy, multidisciplinary science and local communities to form long-term projects in palaeontology.
