Our Participants Talk About NITARP

    The most interesting thing I learned was that it is possible for very young students to wrap their heads around complex “higher level” science if they are motivated and engaged.

    Our kids did a fantastic job of interacting with the many astronomers and educators that came to see our poster. They were poised and knowledgeable and handled questions with ease. I heard many compliments not only about the students explanation of our work, but also about the great job they did constructing their poster.

    Thank you so much for providing this wonderful experience for my students and for me. I learned a lot, and I had a great time. It was a wonderful to have the chance to work with David and Steve.
