It is very sad for me to say that the end of my internship has drawn to a close. I left on Wednesday to fly to Idaho where I proceeded to start a 4 day road trip with my dad all the way to Florida for my facilities training in grad school. On one hand it was sad that I had to leave.
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.
It has been very fun to meet and talk with all of the interns around the Department of Education. On Thursday, there was a 21+ intern social. We did what many people do in DC after work – we went to happy hour. I met about 20 interns from different departments and background.
Already past my fourth week, and coincidentally it was the Fourth of July week! I didn’t want to have any work over my 4 day weekend so I dug in and hammered through as much work as I could get done. And wonderfully enough, I finished three projects leading into Thursday.
