It’s hard to believe that four weeks have already passed since I began the SPS summer internship! There has been so much learning and growth already, and I’m excited to see what other experiences are in store for me as we enter the second half of the internship!
This week, I spent most of time on Excel formatting data for the Compare Your Institution webpage on the APS website. In my opinion, this is an important aspect of the Education and Diversity Statistics project as most institutions and most people use this as a resource very often.
This week at SPS: This week, we had a great meet and greet with Nobel Prize winner, Dr. John Mather. He shared inspirational thoughts and is an encouragement to all of us interns as we take on our internships with SPS.
This past week has been pretty tricky. I’m getting into more analysis and engagement work, trying to understand the audience we are reaching with this project against science misinformation and vaccine hesitancy.
