Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Mccutcheon

    I enjoyed the whole week [at my first AAS]. The aspect that was best was connecting with my teammates. The personal contact at this early stage was important.

  • Powers

    [The most interesting thing during the summer trip was] the change in the students and their growth in confidence. The a-ha moments when the big picture came into focus for them. The tour of
    JPL was fantastic, too.

  • Doyle

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