Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Miller

    I will say that I think part of every good astronomy (or any science) research project is asking a question you don't know the answer to, and I hope that as a teacher I can bring that back to my class. Along with asking questions, both collaboration and organization are important parts of working together for science.

  • 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.

  • Palmer

    This experience has reinforced to me the importance of learning science by doing science.
