Work-Study Student (Spring 2018)

Sarah TurnerHello Everyone! I am a fourth-year student studying both Earth Science and Anthropology at the University of Waterloo. I am very interested in both the sedimentology aspect of Earth Science and the Archaeological aspect of Anthropology, and I am happiest when these two studies overlap as geoarchaeology. I am spending my summer at the Earth Sciences Museum helping with tours and displays. This museum is the perfect place for anyone who is interested in Earth’s geological history, as there are loads minerals and fossils to learn about, each one with its own story.
