Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Doyle

    I was somewhat intimated at the prospect of working with Caltech scientists... however I found my first experience one that eased all my trepidations and instilled excitement for the work I will be doing.

    It was very satisfying to be able to converse with the grad students about their science and actually understand what they were talking about.

    I would advise the scientists to not be afraid of pushing the teachers and students outside their comfort zone. It’s ok if the teachers and students are struggling- we’ll catch up! Just go – make us work hard. It’s what we signed up for.
