Ms. French was on a 2012 NITARP team.
All four main NITARP 2013 teams submitted research proposals. Several NITARP alumni helped review them.
Ms. French got some great local coverage in the 3 Jan Times Reporter -- they made the front page!
There was a nice group of people around each poster [from NITARP 2011]. The students were all very well-prepared and gave a fabulous presentation! They all fielded questions very well. It was very, very impressive to see!
While a lot of astronomy is done by computer, nothing compares to having a human look over the data.
This experience has made me conscious of how important it is to have students work with real data. I will definitely seek out more opportunities to include real data in my lessons and labs.
[This experience] has made me realize that while I use a lot of inquiry, I don’t always involve my students in the process of developing a testable question.
