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

  • Hall

    I have been in education for 4 decades and this one program has given me more confidence in teaching space science than any college training I ever did.

  • Irvariabbetter

    I extend my appreciation and gratitude to all of those people and organizations who coordinated, funded, and have in any way supported this valuable program. THANK YOU!

  • 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.
