The MathScience Innovation Center was delighted to welcome Elliott for a mini-internship this week! We asked him to write a brief blog describing his experiences at the MSiC:
This week for my school, it was required that sophomores find a business that they can intern at and work there for at least 30 hours. So for my internship I worked at the MathScience Innovation Center. On my first day I expected to work with computers and technology, however I got to see a lot more. I was able to see different people teach interesting classes like a Challenger Mission to Mars and Aquatic Adaptations in a huge aquarium with a touch tank for young students.
I was very surprised when I saw how mature the kids were studying topics like fractal geometry and water chemistry, considering they were just 4th and 5th graders. What I was really happy about this week was how wonderful the people who work at MSIC are. Everyone I have met is kind, humble, and hardworking, and I admire all of that. I am so thankful I got to work with Daphne Schmidt and all the other faculty and staff, and I'm very happy I took the opportunity to work with MSIC.
