Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Paulsen

    My skills and knowledge as a science teacher have grown exponentially in the last year.

  • Melton

    Using this research in my classes has provided my students with a glimpse of what professional astronomers are tasked with in describing the workings of the universe.

  • Piper

    This past year was a very intense NITARP experience for me, stretching my intellectual and technological skills beyond their limits while learning to be a mentor teacher and of course transferring as much of this experience to my students as possible.
