How it works

I've been involved in many professional development activities and this is by far the best one I've ever done

Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Curtis

    I think this [AAS] trip is a crucial part of the program. I learned so much about the many different telescopes, enjoyed the historical presentations, and found the exposure to the more specific research to be beneficial, even if I didn't understand that much about the research itself. It was also a great chance to meet scientists as well as other educators.

  • Paulsen

    I feel like a popcorn kernel that has just burst open. I've grown so much at this meeting!

  • Cris

    I wanted to share this with you about one of the students I had on our team that explored star formation in Lynds dark nebulae (LDNs) [in 2008]. [He has since become involved with a big Air Force program at Michigan Tech in 2012.] [He] has often thanked me for getting him involved in NITARP research, having used that experience, in part, to get access to programs such as MTU's Aerospace Enterprise.
