Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Ivers

    I have found that “real astronomy” involves a lot of data processing. In addition, I have found that collaboration is a very important aspect of the process.

  • Novatne

    By far, the most interesting part of my entire NITARP experience is the scientific method applied to the discovery process.

  • Paulsen

    I feel like a popcorn kernel that has just burst open. I've grown so much at this meeting!
