The past two weeks working at the APS Policy Office have been incredibly informative. Tyler Glembo has been an wonderful teacher, and has shown me much more than what I knew in the world of Science Policy; and delving further, Science Education Policy.

I’ve always heard that a science degree can get you anywhere. We all know that a math/science degree is excellent preparation for the extremely vital, significant careers in research, engineering, technology and other technical fields.

After a couple of weeks delay, I’ve finally arrived in DC and I’m so excited to spend the rest of the summer here!

Time is flying by here in DC. It feels like there are not even 24 hours in a day. The National Symphony Orchestra made me feel cultured. It was fun to get dressed up and go out as a complete group.

As cliché as it sounds, it’s incredibly amazing to think this is already the end of the second week. My calendar seemed to be less packed with activities, and yet the time flew by even faster.

That concert was good! However, I like faster pieces… Week 3 has passed, and I would say this was the music week, since I had the opportunity to attend several concerts-presentations.

Friday we ended up not going to the outdoor concert because it was raining so much. Instead we went to an Ethiopian Restaurant called Etete. They had these really good appetizers that were like Indian Samosas.

The big highlight of my third week as an SPS intern was moving into one of the dorms at GW with all of the other interns. It’s so neat to be in DC! The Lincoln Memorial is right down the street, and we’re close to the metro.

Ahh… IT access. Work was finally moving along. The Eta Car group had me working with a new program they were hoping to use to get a new angle on their research.

The Kennedy Center is a delightful place to unwind from the workweek, and that’s just what we did on Friday. The National Symphony Orchestra played an enjoyable program with some rather interesting cello solos, and we took it all in from our seats in the first row.
