Internship at Columbia University

By Gemma Dalfo-Zay

We came into this internship believing we would be working on a telescope, it turned out in fact that it was in Texas and that instead we would be working on HTML programming and an arduino uno. I was skeptical at first, as I had never worked with either before but as time passed I became fascinated. This is a journal detailing my 5 day internship at Columbia University.
