NITARP is the best!
I was surprised [during the summer visit] with the speed with which my students increased their proficiency with the tools we are using -- especially Python programming! My students acted very independently and hardly ever needed me to suggest something for them to do next; many times they were already anticipating the next tasks and trying to figure out how to do it!
[At the AAS,] All the talks I attended were truly interesting. It is pleasure to have others teach me!
