Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Urbanowski

    Your ongoing mentorship and availability is unbelievably valuable to me and my kids; NITARP is like a new chapter in my professional life.

  • Ivers

    The best thing about the [Summer] trip was simply being on the campus at Caltech as an active participant in a science project. I still feel honored to be able to participate in this program. On top of that, to be able to extend the tendrils of my own learning to a few of my students only adds to the satisfaction I derive in being a teacher.

  • Curtis

    I gave a presentation on my group's experience with NITARP at a dinner for about 100 members of the Waynflete School community[..]. The crowd was very impressed with the program and the idea of having students not only conduct authentic scientific research, but then also be able to present their findings to the scientific community.
