Crystal Czarniecki

Education and Collections Research Assistant (Fall 2021)

I am a third year student studying Earth Science with a specialization in Geology. I’ve had a passion for both the Earth and museums my entire life, and the UW Earth Sciences Museum is a fantastic example of how combining science and art can create something magical.

Dylan Simmonds

Work-Study Student (Spring 2019)

Do 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.

Jacqueline Voisin

Education and Collections Research Assistant (Winter 2022)

Hello! I am a second year Earth Science student at UW with a specialization in Geology. I find Earth History and rock processes fascinating and think everyone would enjoy knowing more about them. The Earth Science Museum has such exciting content, and I am so pleased to help make it accessible to others, both virtually and in person.

JC Robertson

Work-Study Student (Fall 2017)

Hi everyone! I am a recent alumni from the Physics department. I joined the Earth Sciences Museum team by helping create the new interactive game "Planning Paradise". On my spare time I learned how to code, which came in handy when the museum needed help creating this game! Stop by sometime and check out the addition to the museum.

Jennifer Rhynas

Assistant Museum Curator (Winter/Spring 2020)

I am a student in the School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability program, and I will be starting my fourth year of study in Fall 2020. I have a passion for educating youth about the environment and earth systems, especially through hands-on and experience-based activities. 

Jenny Huynh

Work-Study Student (Winter 2020)

4B, Biomedical Sciences.

I wanted to work with the ESM because I have volunteered with the museum in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also love working with children! Children benefit from the programs we offer, so I want to contribute to the museum and improve it so that we can provide the best experience for all visitors. 

Kristof Nagy

Work-Study Student (Fall 2022)

I am a second-year Science and Aviation student and this term’s social media communications assistant for the Earth Science Museum. I’ve more recently discovered my interest in geology, rocks, minerals, and GIS thanks to the diverse range of Earth Science courses offered at the University of Waterloo.

Luca Galler

Work-Study Student (Spring 2022)

2B, Physics and Astronomy with Biology Minor.

Why wouldn’t I want to work at the coolest place on campus? As an avid rock collector with a peculiar interest in fossils I wanted to be a part of the ESM team. During the semester I had a chance to assist with social media outreach!

Melissa Gibbon

Work-Study Student (Winter 2023)

I’m a fourth-year science and business student and I will be optimizing volunteer onboarding processes for the ESM. Museums have always been my happy place and we are very lucky to have a gneiss one right here on campus, don’t take it for granite!

Oliver Baker

Education and Collections Research Assistant (Winter 2022)

I am a second year student studying Earth Sciences with a specialization in Geology. I originally came to Waterloo pursuing a degree in Physics and Astronomy, until I took an Earth Sciences class and loved it.  Since then my passion for geology has only grown and I am excited to see where it takes me.

Puneet Khaira

Assistant Museum Curator (Fall 2018)

Hi! I’m a 3rd year undergraduate student studying Environmental Science, specializing in Geoscience. The Earth Sciences Museum is an amazing place filled with creative and interesting exhibits. I have already learned so much and I am excited to continue learning and to share my knowledge with visitors of the museum.

Sarah Turner

Work-Study Student (Spring 2018)

Hello 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.

Shelby Robertson

Assistant Museum Curator (Fall 2020)

Hi! I am in my third year of Environmental Science with a specialization in Ecology and I am very excited to spend the semester bringing the Earth Sciences Museum to you online! I’ve been lucky to have wonderful experiences with and outside the University of Waterloo, that have demonstrated the vital importance of understanding and creating a sustainable relationship with our environment.  

Stephen Marshall

Assistant Museum Curator (Winter 2015)

I am a first year geological engineering student and this is my very first work term at the University of Waterloo. I am thrilled to be working at the Earth Science Museum as I enjoy learning, science especially, and teaching others. The wealth of knowledge contained within these walls is amazing, and I hope to learn as much as I can as well as enhance everyone else’s learning experience.

Jack Li

Assistant Museum Curator (Winter 2015)

I am a second year Knowledge Integration student and working at the Earth Sciences Museum was my first ever Work-Study experience. I had the opportunity to tackle the challenge of re-designing the Chinese Jade Exhibit, and with the help of fellow assistants and the curator, we have completed the brand new exhibit on June 11th 2015.

Manuel Arab

I'm Manny but some of you may know me as the Keeper of SSD's, the source of our Science power and embodiment of all that we strive for!... sort of. I'm a 4A (-ish) Geology Student that has dabbled in Geoarchaeology, and Classics with quite a bit of passion for both. I hope to do my thesis in Paleontology this year to try and tie my interests together. My time here at the museum has shown me that I have a deep appreciation for teaching others about the past and I personally feel like this is something I wish to pursue in the future.
