Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Doyle

    My NITARP experience has made me rethink my entire approach to science education. Many of my students expect me to do the work and pretty much hand it to them all wrapped up and neat. Science education must involve a great deal of discovery by the student and not a string of topics with definitions.

    This experience was life changing! It has changed the way I teach everything, not just astronomy.

  • Piper

    How cool for the kids see a poster right next to theirs being presented by three university professors on one side and a graduate student on the other.
