Steve Brusatte is a paleontologist and professor at the University of Edinburgh. He has traveled around the world digging up dinosaurs and named more than 15 new species. Steve has written several books for kids and adults, most notably the adult pop science book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs (2018), which was a New York Times bestseller in the USA and Sunday Times bestseller in the UK, and The Rise and Reign of the Mammals (2022). He was the paleontology advisor for the 2022 film Jurassic World: Dominion and was the resident paleontologist for the BBC's Walking with Dinosaurs franchise.

Event Description:

For kids aged 3-10 years old, come enjoy a colouring and educational workshop on own fossil discoveries. Author and leading paleontologist Steve Brusatte will guide young dinosaur enthusiasts in exploring through art what T. rex, Brontosaurus, and other dinosaurs actually looked like using his wife Anne Brusatte’s children’s book Dugie the Dinosaur. 2024 marks the 200th anniversary of the first time a dinosaur was named, but today the most exciting discoveries are from China, including skeletons covered in feathers that prove birds evolved from dinosaurs. In this special interactive event for children and families, learn about the latest in dinosaur research from paleontologist Steve Brusatte, author of the bestselling The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs and consultant for the film Jurassic World: Dominion.
