How it works

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

Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Paulsen

    The middle schoolers [from NITARP 2012] fielded questions from an astronomer from the Keck observatory like old pros -­‐ very professional! I can’t wait to see my students do the same.

  • Oconnor

    Real astronomy isn’t just looking through telescopes with the naked eye anymore. It is really being accurate and precise and a lot of computer mathematics.

  • Powers

    I am grateful for NITARP and appreciative for all those that put in the long hours so the program can be as successful as it is. I had heard about the program at a workshop in 2012 and decided to apply since I heard what a great program it is. My experiences have gone way beyond my expectations. Thanks [..] for giving teachers and students the opportunities you do!
