Kearns Louis-Jean

My first day at NIST went really well. My boss Dr. Catherine Rimmer is really fun to work for. I also met Ms. Karen Cloud who is a former participant of the NIST summer Institute for Middle School Science Teachers.

This was a fantastic week for outreach. Thursday afternoon, a few of the other interns and I headed to NIST, under Kendra's supervision, to talk to the children at the institute’s daycare about light and optics.

Highlights of this week include birthdays and the next generation. The birthday is of course America's, but the next generation was somewhat more interesting.

The weekend was fairly uneventful for me, which is a good thing. I definitely needed some time to take a breather, sleep, finish chores around the apartment, etc... I did go to the Air and Space Museum on Sunday, but it was super packed (which is normal, from what I'm told).

As Felipe returned to the lab after an eventful journey back from Mexico, my surroundings have become a little less silent. This week I finished up the draft of my paper, sent it to Dr. Chuss and Karwan for review and also got to get my hands a little dirty in the lab.

This past week was filled with more than a few adventurous days! Last weekend began with an outing to Jazz in the Garden outside of the National Gallery of Art. Mark and I planned on meeting up with several of the other interns, but my plans changed slightly once we arrived.

Monday began rather slowly as I was told by the office to arrive at 10am, I suppose as to avoid the morning rush. I entered into a small foyer, greeted one of my two co-interns, and met with the legislative correspondent (LC) for my intern orientation.
