Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Johnson

    Real astronomy involves working as a team to find an answer. The NITARP program provides a unique, real-life experience in real astronomy to the teachers and students involved.

    Thanks again for this amazing opportunity. I really hope it can continues even in light of the difficult financial times. It would be a terrible loss if it went away because it feels a very specific niche that is not met by any other program I have seen.

  • Johnson

    Standing by the poster nearly all day, my three girls described our [research]. To say that I was proud would be a gross understatement.
