Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Curtis

    To get the chance to work with astronomers and researchers in the field, to do authentic research, and to attend conventions and be immersed in astronomy is absolutely amazing for a high school science teacher.

  • Mike

    I very much enjoyed meeting the other NITARP astronomers and participants. I was especially interested in the students’ experiences. Keeping the students in the loop and continuing to focus them on the big picture were especially good lessons from the past I plan to apply in the coming year.

  • Laura

    Always impresses me how well a ‘kid’ can perform if supported and presented with a challenge that interests them.
