Keynote Presentation by Scott Semmens, Original Wisdom 
The Ultimate Field Trip: Wildlife Tracking and Mapping in Southern Africa


In the summer of 2015, Scott Semmens accompanied students from Hopkinton and Bow High Schools (NH), to South Africa to study the geography, ecology, culture of the Greater Kruger National Park area. Their field study included observing animal behavior, tracks, and sign as well as interacting with local villagers. Over the 21 days of their adventure, they trailed elephants, rhinos, and lions and showed local students how to use ArcGIS to better understand their community and its surroundings.

Scott is originally from North Dakota, and currently resides in Stoddard, New Hampshire. Scott has degrees in Biology, Anthropology, and Science Education. He has been teaching High School science for over 25 years, including biology, chemistry, earth science, ecology, astronomy, marine biology, GIS, physical science, and adventure education. Scott has been a tracker for over 20 years.
