Our Lottie Fan Friday this week celebrates six-year old fossil fan, the incredible Charlotte - Lottie! Lottie's interest in science and paleontology is inspiring, and she counts the women behind Trowelblazers as her role models!
Lottie's Mum, Jem;
Charlotte recently turned 6 and received her fossil hunter Lottie for her birthday. Lottie has a passion for paleontology, she loves to read and write stories and watches many programs related to dinosaurs and fossil dig sites. Lottie is self motivated to learn and explore, sadly it has been suggested to Charlottie that playing with dirt, learning about dinosaurs and dreaming about making a famous discovery is for boys not little girls... As her parents we reject this and encourage her passion. The Lottie doll led us to TrowelBlazers which opened her eyes to the many fantastic women who work in the archaeologist, geologist and paleontologist fields and the women who have a long history in these fields, this has encouraged her to continue with her dream to study paleontology. Thank you for inspiring my little girl.

What Makes You Special - I have a good memory and love to learn!! I can remember over 70 species of dinosaur and many facts of each including what they ate, bone structures and which period of the Mesozoic era they are from.
Charlotte in her element, with Fossil Hunter Lottie!
