My first week as an SPS intern began with a very fun 2-hour virtual orientation. I know, 2 hours on Zoom does not sound enjoyable at all - but believe me I could have stayed for another hour to talk more about bucket hats and listen to staff members’ stories.
This will be my last blog post for the summer, as my internship has officially concluded. I spent this last week presenting my progress to a few NASA personell and plenty of SPS guests. I talked about the background of LDI mass spectrometry and the drawbacks of the dried droplet method.
And so, it ends…. or does it? This summer internship has been such a fantastic experience. We closed it off Friday with our final presentations and I’m so impressed how much we all learned even having done this virtually.
Well, that’s all folks! This will be my last blog post as an SPS intern. This has been an amazing experience! I could not be more grateful for this opportunity to give back to the physics community and to participate in so many fantastic activities at APS Careers.
I’m glad I waited a couple days after our symposium to write this. The end of the week was something of a blur, exciting and interesting to be sure, but I think I’m better able to reflect back on the summer, now that things have quieted down.
My what a summer it’s been too (no vehicular homicide though, don’t worry). Also, let the record show that I’m combining the week nine and week ten journals here, because I did wrap my internship up early with the start of graduate school and all.
