Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Mehta

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

  • Debbie

    This experience has made me conscious of how important it is to have students work with real data. I will definitely seek out more opportunities to include real data in my lessons and labs.

  • Mike

    I really enjoyed meeting members of the other NITARP teams and comparing their experience to mine. Everyone’s experience was different, but there seemed to be an overwhelming consensus that NITARP was the most significant, educational, and enjoyable professional development experience they have ever had. I could not agree more.
