Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Childers

    I did not anticipate how exhausted I’d get [at my first AAS meeting].

  • Mehta

    I actually felt like I was able to accomplish something that would have some meaning to the scientific community.

  • Grannucci

    Working with teachers and astronomers across the country was great for my personal knowledge. Working across times zones was another fun, but interesting challenge. Learning how to work with completely new people, being in a new place, learning new material, all of these experiences help shape me better as a person.
