Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Odden

    Today [June 2014] I was musing about how NITARP took me to my first AAS in 2012. This summer I went on my own, had a great time connecting with established friends and meeting new ones, and even presented my own poster. I'd say that's some pretty good progress! Thanks for all that you do for us teachers!

    The teachers who I have met through NITARP are just amazing. I am continually impressed by how hard they work and how enthusiastically they learn.

  • Ivers

    I am very impressed at the abilities of the [NITARP 2012] youngsters in handling the science. It is wonderful to see teachers engaging students in this way as it is an experience that could help direct them toward becoming scientists.
