Not only was this week the last week for Nikki and I working at the Science Committee but it was also the last week before Congress goes into its’ August Recess. Therefore, there was quite a bit of work that had to be done.
I can’t believe how quickly time is passing. We only have a week and a half left, which is crazy. I am really enjoying the projects I have been working on and really like the other interns. It will be so sad to go our separate ways in just a few weeks.
This week was all about finishing up the poster for my presentation. My mentor has been in Canada, and so he was hard to reach. Fortunately the rest of the group, namely Tom and Mike, were able to help me along the way. By Tuesday I had finished the first draft of the poster.
It’s been sitting on my shelf for months now, that little wind-up wonder with the AIP logo on its rotating breast. It hasn’t moved since I played with it the first Monday morning at the office. The office . . . that’s how I think of it now. And home . . .
On Friday we toured NIST with Alexandra and Dr. John Suehle, her mentor. We visited so many labs that I’ve probably lost track of a few, but these are the highlights. Our first stop was in the electron microscopy suite – though the star of the show wasn’t even an SEM.
The beginning of this week I started working on preliminary drawings for the Angular Momentum and Rotation. I have to send them to the Art Director at APS to have them professional drawn up for my activities.
