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.
Time is flying by here in DC! Often I’ve thought to myself, I can’t believe I’ve only known these people for two weeks now! It’s nice that we all, the interns, get along so well. It feels like I already have great friends here. So let us begin where I left off last week…
With upcoming hearings to prepare for, new projects coming up, calls coming in, papers to be delivered, receptions to be attended, and visitors stopping by, there is never a dull moment in the Committee office.
Arriving late due to my school being on the quarter system, I hit the ground running. My first day of my internship included commuting with the other interns to the ACP (American Center of Physics) building in Maryland.
When last I left you hanging in suspense, we were set to venture forth and bring science to masses of children at the HoCo STEM Festival. Demos would be set up, experiments would be performed, diffraction glasses would be worn! A new day! A red day!
Monday the third of June was our first day at work for the summer, and everything looks quite exciting. As we’ll hopefully continue to do throughout the summer, all of us who are staying at GW walked to the metro station at 7:40, and we were at the American Center for Physics at 9 on the dot.
