Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Denise

    I had no idea there was so much research going on in Astronomy. Astronomers are very eager to explain their research and future goals. A very friendly bunch.

  • Odden

    I have a much better sense of what research astronomy is about now, and I think I will have more confidence to try new things (related to astronomy) going forward.

  • Donelson

    I just wanted to let you know that this 38 year veteran teacher believes [NITARP] is one of the greatest types of professional development I have ever done, and MANY students will benefit from your hard work here in Central Ohio for years to come.  Thanks so much for all your efforts, especially this year!
