Our Participants Talk About NITARP

    I didn't anticipate meeting engineers and graphic artists [at the AAS].

  • Powers

    I am grateful for NITARP and appreciative for all those that put in the long hours so the program can be as successful as it is. I had heard about the program at a workshop in 2012 and decided to apply since I heard what a great program it is. My experiences have gone way beyond my expectations. Thanks [..] for giving teachers and students the opportunities you do!

    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!
