Our Participants Talk About NITARP

    The teachers who I have met through NITARP are just amazing. I am continually impressed by how hard they work and how enthusiastically they learn.

    The "new" astronomy has become something we all knew was coming: handling huge chunks of data and learning how to mine this information from sets so large that it is simply mind boggling. The interesting thing is that many people are not aware of this, notably teachers in the trenches.

    You and this program (NITARP) have been truly remarkable and has already changed my life forever. I'm just waiting to see what happens next.
