This virtual team collects all independent research presented in 2010, and done by NITARP or Spitzer alumni with students outside of a formal NITARP team. Four different teams presented results in 2010!
I have already talked to my department about adding an astronomy research class to our class choices next year and they are very enthusiastic.
NITARP has transformed my life and the way I teach, so it's difficult to find anything that has NOT been influenced by this experience!
It is an eye opening and life changing experience for the participants.
