Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Laura

    I LOVED the chance to talk with some of the students that have been involved in the NITARP program. It was really good to hear of their insights and thoughts about the program, the process, and how it influenced their year and future plans.

  • Edwards

    It was wonderful to see the students from last year presenting their posters and talking with astronomers and teachers from all over the world.
