Work-Study Student (Spring 2019)

Dylan SimmondsDo you like rocks? I like rocks, that’s why I work here. Geology is a discipline which allows me to best understand the Earth and its resources. Whether teaching kids about geology or working with the museum’s collection, my affinity for this field is always growing. Currently a second-year geology student, I hope to one day enter the mineral exploration industry. I hope you enjoy the Earth Science Museum as much as I do!
