Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Ivers

    I am very impressed at the abilities of the [NITARP 2012] youngsters in handling the science. It is wonderful to see teachers engaging students in this way as it is an experience that could help direct them toward becoming scientists.

    It was very satisfying to be able to converse with the grad students about their science and actually understand what they were talking about.

    One thing I learned from this meeting is I love my project. It is going to be very interesting and way cool!! I can’t wait to tell my astronomy club about it.
