The second week of working with AAPT has been exciting, and very full. I spent a few days working on an upcoming project aimed at teaching physics to young students through computer science and programming, which is something I have always been interested in.

I arrived in dc on May 22nd, with two weeks to go before I started my internship. Even as I enjoyed the beginning of summer, I started to feel a little bit anxious about starting this job.

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.

Abstract submissions are now being accepted for the the AAPT Winter Meeting in New Orleans, LA in January 2016. Abstracts will be accepted from August 5 to September 9.
