Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • 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!

  • Edwards

    One of the most interesting things I learned while working with my team was how unique and surprising each star can be.

  • Johnson

    Of all the professional development programs in which I have been involved, NITARP continues to rank among the top few. The opportunity to work with a world-class astronomer and alongside teachers and students across the country on a real research project is amazing!
