Final Thoughts


Written Thoughts:

Working for NASA has been a very insightful and exciting experience. For this internship, I was working from January to May, in which I was creating a simulation using motion capture and virtual reality equipment in order to conduct human factors test (analyzing a person interact with things in a model, in simple terms). I was provided with everything I needed and free rein on how I approached this project. Furthermore, my coworkers and mentor where great to work with, and I could always talk to them about anything, whether it be life or work. They were all approachable and believed that I could get the work done, in other words, I never had someone breathing down my neck. Additionally, the building in which I worked was different from the rest, consisting of huge mock-ups of space habitats and the like, which was always fun to walk into. However, one thing to note was that in my building there was only one other intern, which did not allow for much interaction with other interns during work hours, only when there were intern talks about once a week. All in all, it was a great experience, and as long as you do the work, try hard, and show progress, the team will greatly appreciate you. I plan to come back for the summer of 2020! Pros: - Great coworkers. - Flexible hour. - Fun work. - Independence. - Good communication. - Intern talks. Cons: - Not much intern interaction (due to where I worked). - No free housing. - No discounts or swag.
