It is crazy to think that there is only one week left in the entirety of this program. The summer has gone by incredibly quickly and I cannot believe that it is coming to an end.

This week began with a tour of The Optical Society, where one of the SPS interns, Michael, works. The tour involved seeing parts of the new office building that have been remodeled, listening to guest speakers, and ending the day with snacks in the OSA lounge.

This past week was extremely busy with old projects, new projects, and tours. Firstly, Tori and I officially completed all of the exhibit cases, including hanging up stars in the downstairs case to add an extra visual component that draws attention to the information inside.

This past week consisted of only three actual work days, due to the long-weekend. Not surprisingly, D.C. goes crazy for the Fourth of July. There were beautiful fireworks, immensely large crowds, and lots of fun.

This week, we finished installing our physical exhibit, Why the History of Physics Matters, in the Neils Bohr Library & Archives! This was incredibly exciting because we got to see all our efforts over the past five weeks finally come together into a final product.

Over the past week, Tori and I have been working on the physical aspects of creating the exhibit: finalizing designs, printing and resizing images, obtaining the large images for the backgrounds, etc.

I have really become immersed in my project at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives this past week. Along with fellow intern, Tori, I am currently working to create a museum exhibit to showcase why the history of physics matters.

Over the course of the next ten weeks, I will be chronicling my time as an SPS Intern, specifically in working with the wonderful team at the Niels Bohr Library and Archives at the American Institute of Physics.
