And so, the Podcast begins, the first official episode was recorded Friday night and I will be posting it sometime next week. I’m very happy with how much I learned from the setting up the Podcast and look forward to making every episode better than the last.

Wow already reflecting on week 5, time is really flying now and the summer AAPT meeting is coming up fast! The panel I’m hosting is coming along well, I reached out to one of my mentors and they connected me with 4 of their students.

Oh, how time flies, week 4 has now come to a close and I’m having a good a time as ever. We have the teacher lounge schedule finalized and I am now reaching out to HS and college students to be on my panel in the lounge.

I have to say I’m sad I won’t be meeting my peers this summer because we have so much fun at our online hangouts. It’s amazing how much a fun game can bring people together even when they’re miles apart.

Week 2 on the virtual platform and things are still running smoothly. My mentor Mark and I are remaining in great contact even though we are a few hundred miles away.

So, let’s address the elephant in the room, the entire internship has been moved online. This said, I can’t express how grateful I am to everyone who made the virtual internship possible and fought to give us an experience we will most definitely reflect positively upon.

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.
