Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • John

    We had a staff meeting this morning and the kids presented our research and shared our experiences to the entire staff. They did an outstanding job and many of our teachers have commented to me how impressed they were by what they did. One of our teachers (and MIT grad) asked a couple of good questions and commented afterward to me he was impressed that they could explain the answer (noting that they were not just number crunching).

    I’m excited to tell my students about this research and share my experiences from the [AAS] last week.
