Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • 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!

  • Mccutcheon

    The NITARP experience was terrific from start to finish – well organized, informative, and unique.

    I had a request to present an inquiry professional development for educators while I was at NITARP and the AAS. Because of the amount of resources, new astronomy, lesson plans, and conversations I now feel I can try this with astronomy rather than my fields of practice.
