AS I reflect on the events that have passed so far this summer, I can't imagine how the world is changing.  Amidst it all, the fundamental building blocks of the universe are never changing.  Our understanding of the changes on a daily basis.  With each passing day, it becomes more and more evide

This was another fun week at APS Careers! I feel like I’m really making an impact on the community and am loving being around fellow physicists that care so deeply about helping the physics community progress and thrive.

Although my blogs the first two weeks were not very insightful, I do actually have a real job at APS. My job for the summer was to update the APS Top Educators lists and Physics Graphs & Statistics. All in all, lots of working in Excel.

This was a fantastically productive and encouraging week here at APS Careers. I am really starting to feel like a member of the team and the community both within APS Programs and amongst my fellow SPS interns!

Wow, what a week.  So much turmoil around us, not only with COVID-19 but also in society with #Strike4BlackLives and #ShutDownSTEM.  Will life go back to some sense of normal?  What will that normal be when it finally returns?
