Our Participants Talk About NITARP

    I had an amazing, exhausting time at the [2012] AAS meeting. I found myself continually challenged by the intellectual level and knowledge being shared. I was surprised and very encouraged to see a high proportion of people which are generally considered underrepresented in the sciences. That was a terrific take-home message for my students. It was an excellent experience all around, and gives me confidence that my team and I will be able to do a good job with our project and be great representatives of the NITARP program.

    I now have scientific street cred with my students!

    NITARP has transformed my life and the way I teach, so it's difficult to find anything that has NOT been influenced by this experience!
