Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Thompson

    The surprising part of our research was the time we spent on communication, and the value of saying something out-loud has to understanding it.

  • Piper

    Our kids did a fantastic job of interacting with the many astronomers and educators that came to see our poster. They were poised and knowledgeable and handled questions with ease. I heard many compliments not only about the students explanation of our work, but also about the great job they did constructing their poster.
