This virtual team collects all independent research presented in 2013, and done by NITARP or Spitzer alumni with students outside of a formal NITARP team. In 2013, we have one article in The Physics Teacher, and one poster on young stars.
I just wanted to let you know that this 38 year veteran teacher believes [NITARP] is one of the greatest types of professional development I have ever done, and MANY students will benefit from your hard work here in Central Ohio for years to come. Thanks so much for all your efforts, especially this year!
It was very satisfying to be able to converse with the grad students about their science and actually understand what they were talking about.
It was wonderful to see the students from last year presenting their posters and talking with astronomers and teachers from all over the world.
