When I first found out that I was accepted for this internship and that I would be spending the summer in Washington D.C., I made it my goal to be on a first name basis with Barack and Michelle Obama. And while I didn’t come anywhere close to achieving this, I still could not be happier that I went. This summer was an insanely good experience for me. I met a lot of great people, lived in a completely new environment, had a lot of unforgettable experiences, and did a lot of work that I think could really benefit the education system in America.

Like the fourth week, the fifth week has gone a little slow. For my work, I continued updating the PTRA documents. These updates included noting where the NGSS should be taken into account for lesson plans, as well as converting some of the lesson plans to the 5-E format. Educators and school districts across the U.S. are moving toward both the NGSS and the 5-E method as their preference for teaching science, so my work using them marks the future of education.

The fourth week has definitely been the most calm out of all of them. Maybe it’s just that I’m getting used to busy city life, or maybe it’s just that this week wasn’t as filled with internship action as the previous weeks. But it was still a good week.
