Hi! This summer I would like to do something extracurricular within physics. I'm taking classes this summer to catch up in credits due to transferring so I dont really have time to get an internship. But I was wondering if it would be ok to contact a professor who has a similiar research interest as me to see if he could use any help this summer. Of course I would offer my services for free (with the hidden agenda getting a letter of recomondation later). I dont know if professor's typically do this? It would be a part-time thing but I'm not even sure what to really ask of him. Also the professor I have in mind I dont actually know and he is the head of the math and sciences department, so do think he would have time for someone like me? Any suggestions on how to get some part-time enrichment work this summer would be great! Thanks!
