On June 2011, I joined 9 other physics students from all over the United States in an internship at the Society of Physics Students in College Park, Maryland. Each of the interns had a unique position within either the American Institute of Physics, the American Physical Society, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), or the US Congress. For the next 10 weeks, I worked in the Outreach Department of the American Physical Society, producing home experiments in Thermodynamics for middle-school children.
