Kathleen Havens, Museum Team Member

Kathleen Havens is the Museum's Assistant Director of Youth Education - which means that she's responsible for all the explosions, mummy-making, paint splatter, robot-battling and all the other fun summer camp experiences available for kids at the Museum.

In fact, one of the summer camps she developed is Crime Scene Investigators - which gives her invaluable perspective on the dig process in Seymour. She's also been to Comfort, TX with the team to investigate a sauropod footprint trackway; this is her second trip to Seymour.
"I love the process, and the procedure. The fact that you never know what you're going to find next. It's always so exciting when someone yells across the site 'Oh! Look what I found!"
As a summer camp teacher, Kathleen enjoys bringing what she learns here back to her students.
"There's nothing like showing students a real piece of bone or something you found to make it real for them. Otherwise, it's just something out of a textbook."
