Quinn Worthington

Assistant Museum Curator (Winter and Spring 2018)

Quinnn WorthingtonHey everyone! I am a fourth year student studying Environmental Science, specializing in Geoscience. My interest in the earth and environment stems from my curiosity about the unknown and the need to find answers! There are so many questions to be asked and answers to be found, and the Earth Sciences Museum has great information that allows me to help others feed their inquisitive minds! 

While I’m not polishing up the exhibits in the museum, I’m likely adding to my own excessively large rock and mineral collection. I love anything to do with the outdoors (surprising, I know); kayaking, snowy hikes, camping – you name it!  

Come check out the museum sometime! Rocks, dinosaurs, minerals, and more… What else could you ask for?
