Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Keeton

    This year [at the AAS] was so much different than last year [because of] having a poster to share with others!

  • Johnson

    Of all the professional development programs in which I have been involved, NITARP continues to rank among the top few. The opportunity to work with a world-class astronomer and alongside teachers and students across the country on a real research project is amazing!

  • Kilts

    Thank you so much for coordinating what is a transformative experience for all involved!
