I had lots of meetings this week. First, I attended several of the AAPT committee meetings, including the high school, undergraduate, and diversity committees. It was interesting to see what some of them are working on for future AAPT meetings and what the other parts of AAPT are working on.
I also had a few meetings related to quantum computing, both for the upcoming workshop and a potential larger future project. I'm glad that I've been able to help out with preparing for the workshop and that I get to go.
Finally, we had the SPS intern picnic. It was unfortunately a virtual event, but it was neat to hear from Rep. Rush Holt. I was interested in his ideas on sciecne education and how the main goal of science outreach should be to encourage others to think scientifically. We hadn't met in a few weeks, so it was also fun to have a chance to play some games with the other interns.
Not much happened in West Lafayette this week. I've seen some friends, baked some cookies, and that's about it.
