The highlight of this week was undoubtedly our tour of NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This is an amazing place, a true gem of a national lab, and a cornerstone of American industry.

After the 4th of July, I stayed close to home, skyped with my family, and did laundry and such. Nothing too eventful!

This week, my office had only two interns (compared to the usual four), which made for a busy week.

After an epic 4th of July, my weekend was very laid back. Saturday, I caught up on laundry and Star Trek (TNG) episodes. Sunday, Ashley and I headed to the Pentagon City Mall for a day of shopping.

This past week has been absolutely packed! The big thing around town last weekend was of course the Fourth of July and I was not disappointed by the celebrations! On top of all the extra things happening around here, it seemed like Vassar descended on the capital!

The week of July 7th began like every other week, but I wasted no time getting back to work. This week, like the week before, would be one work day short. On Friday, Kelby and Ben were to lead us on a tour of NIST.

This was my second week working at NIST. It gets more exciting by the day. On Monday the institute for the middle school science teachers started and I finally got to meet all of the teachers. We did introductions on the first day and the teachers went through a workshop on measurement.
