Carl Lewis, Scientist, Explorer and Director of Fairchild Tropical and Botanic Garden in Miami Florida, explains the moment of inspiration that led him to become a scientist, and how his 6 year-old daughter has helped pollinate the African sausage trees at Fairchild. She is an example of his formula for inspiring today's children to discover, enjoy and take on science as a career. About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
