This week at SPS:  The first week of my internship with SPS has been exciting.  This summer's internship program is still remote because of COVID-19, but there are still plenty of fun things happening virtually.  We had our orientation this week, and we also had a meet and greet event!

I am a recent Physics and Computer Science graduate from Texas A&M University. This summer, I am one of the NIST research interns, and I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity.

A bit late to the party, but here goes

Started the internship off with a rocky start. I had to move out of my apartment the same day the internship started, then had to make a 1,400 mile trek from South Texas to South Florida. But luckily my supervisor is super understanding.

My internship had a great start this week! I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get to know my fellow interns and the awesome people at APS. We met with SPS staff on Tuesday for orientation. It was great to learn more about the organization and get some tips for the summer.

Welp—we did it folks! Before this week started, I was nervous and excited and had so many questions about what my summer might hold. Would I get to write this week? Would my mentor be nice? Would the other interns be cool? Would I like this job?
