Meet some of our incredible Staff members!
Corina McDonald is the curator of the Earth Sciences Museum and Science Museum and Galleries in the Faculty of Science at the University of Waterloo. She has been curating since 2012.
Corina grew up in Wawa, ON, an area well known for its beauty and significant geological richness. Her appreciation for natural beauty lead Corina to explore her interests as a photographer and potter while her interests in geology lead her to study earth science, completing a BSc. and MSc. at the University of Waterloo.
I am a technical Illustrator, 3D artist, as well as UX design explorer, who is passionate about digital technology in general and Augmented/Virtual reality (AR/VR) in particular.
I am one of those lucky people who have spent a lifetime exploring the world of geology, gathering specimens for the museum, rocks for my rock garden, preparing displays and presentations on the subject for the museum and Wat on Earth Newsletter. After being curator since the early 1970’s I now volunteer one day a week as needed.
I am a University of Waterloo Earth Science Alumni who just completed the most amazing position as the Earth Sciences Museum curator while Corina McDonald was on leave. My next geological adventure includes coordinating a field trip for a group of New Hampshire University Students to study and gain an understanding of the Niagara Escarpment from Niagara Falls to Manitoulin Island.
