“I wanted to say thank you for the kind words and for the incredible opportunity. I learned a lot from it; most importantly, what it is that I want to do in the future, as I discovered that not only do I want to study to become a physicist or research scientist, but I also want to advocate for causes that I believe in and communicate information to people about how, together, we can solve these problems and make the world a better place. I greatly enjoyed all the activities and projects, and the way you presented the day’s topic and encouraged participation from students made them something I looked forward to every day. Again, thank you so much ma’am and I hope you have a great summer!”
