Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Robert

    Astronomers, all of whom are scientists, can be personal, funny, and outright social beings.

  • Pruett

    The NITARP experience inspires students to participate in research and inspires teachers to find a place in their work (either in a club, the classroom, or new programs) for authentic research. For me, personally, this year of working along with students to learn about black holes has shaped my pedagogical view that real research should be the basis for all science courses.

    It has been a pleasure working in the program and with the other educators and students.
