Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Odden

    I have a much better sense of what research astronomy is about now, and I think I will have more confidence to try new things (related to astronomy) going forward.

  • Doyle

    For me, [this project] was a real partnership between scientists and educators. All questions and suggestion were taken seriously and with respect.

  • Merrill

    Words can't describe my delight and gratitude to NITARP for the "over the top" experience at AAS 217th convention in Seattle. The breadth of conveyed knowledge, the phenomenal networking, the latest science discoveries, the business and career opportunities and the educational options were astounding.
