Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Novatne

    The experience has changed my understanding of astronomy and how it is done, but not of astronomers.

  • Hall

    I have been in education for 4 decades and this one program has given me more confidence in teaching space science than any college training I ever did.

  • Denise

    Over all, the NITARP experience was nothing I had ever experienced before as a teacher. The research was very interesting and challenging at the same time.
