Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • 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.

  • Mike

    [at the 2013 AAS,] I was always struck by the focus on ensuring the data is real and using modeling to create templates when classifying objects or processes.

  • Sanchez

    I wanted to thank you for such a wonderful experience. I am not sure if I could ever say this enough. It will definitely be a time in my life/career I will not ever forget.
