Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Odden

    Thank you so much for providing this wonderful experience for my students and for me. I learned a lot, and I had a great time. It was a wonderful to have the chance to work with David and Steve.

  • Paulsen

    I’m thinking I’ll have my 6th graders each do a project on an observatory in our astronomy unit. There are so many!

  • John

    Having the opportunity to get new ideas from my peers and discuss projects, activities and strategies helps me to grow and keeps me from becoming stagnant in my teaching. Programs like this are like gold to me because the financial situation in the district in which I teach is such that there is no money available to send our faculty to national conferences.
