How it works

I've been involved in many professional development activities and this is by far the best one I've ever done

This virtual team collects all independent research presented in 2013, and done by NITARP or Spitzer alumni with students outside of a formal NITARP team. In 2013, we have one article in The Physics Teacher, and one poster on young stars.

Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Denise

    The best thing [of the Caltech trip] was working with the other participants and making progress as a team. My students were engaged and willing to be challenged.

  • Novatne

    The experience has changed my understanding of astronomy and how it is done, but not of astronomers.

  • Miller

    I think that astronomy is much more accessible to everyone than any other science. I had no idea all of the data for the research I'll be doing with my team is online!
