Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Edwards

    This experience convinced me even further that I can push myself to learn even more each and every day. I started out feeling very overwhelmed and unprepared last year. I forced myself to work through my unease and wound up much more comfortable. I learned that astronomers are much more down-to-earth than I envisioned a lot of them to be and so many of them are very willing to go out of their way to explain things when we have questions.

  • Grannucci

    [..]this experience for the students was golden. Having the chance to share this opportunity for learning with my students is by far the best thing that came out of the project.

  • Keeton

    For me as an educator, it was really rejuvenating to come out here (and bring a student with) and dive into actual astronomical research.
