This week has been pretty exciting, I have moved on from working with salt water and salt propanol to working with rhodamine-6G. When I ordered it off the internet, it came with a safety sheet that recommended a fume hood and a formal laboratory, but all I have is a garage and work table.
My second week has gone well! I have met more with my mentor, Dr. Southard, and also with Dr. Xiang Li, another researcher at Goddard. They took a look at my earlier experiment and made some suggestions to improve it.
Hello! This is Anna, and I’m one of the NASA interns this summer. Briefly, I’m a senior physics major at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN. I am very excited and grateful to be part of this program this summer!
