Sara Johnson Kurth (MS Geology, 2008)
Museum Educator in Chicago, Illinois
I am working in a geology-ish museum. I am the sole geologist on staff at a lapidary art museum (cutting and polishing stone) in the 'burbs of Chicago. I run educational programs, as well as provide outreach opportunities to area schools and libraries. I design these program to comply with Illinois state standards in science.
I recently completed a project revamping the Introductory video for the museum, including earth science content geared for 3rd graders on up. The video is available online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lp27VEhW234. I wrote for a grant through the Institute of Museum and Library Services to make this video possible.Information last updated on Dec 15, 2016
