This week was full of introductions and new experiences for everyone. Monday was the first day that I met my official mentor, Mark Hannum, in person. We had been part of group Zoom meetings, but I was finally able to meet him face-to-face. The timing of his first day was hectic.

This week was amazing. It started in sunny and hot Phoenix at the STEM+C Workshop that AAPT was helping to put on. I was going to not only learn about the new coding language and how the program can be used in the classroom, but I was also serving as a representative for AAPT.

From start to finish, this week has been a wild one. This week at AAPT, I’ve been helping Rebecca to finalize everything for the conference in Phoenix. I’m currently writing this from Phoenix, so as of now, everything is running smoothly.

This week was amazing, and it started right from the start. On Monday, my mentor told me that if I wanted to, I could help out Rebecca Vieyra, who was the mentor for previous AAPT SPS interns, prepare for a STEM+C Workshop and even attend some of the workshop.

After months of waiting, the day had finally arrived. I was in Washington, D.C., meeting my fellow interns, and starting my internship. I was so scared that I would miss my flight or that I would get lost trying to get to the dorm, but everything worked out and I made here safe and sound.
