Our Participants Talk About NITARP

  • Keeton

    The experience I had at the 2012 AAS meeting as well as the entire NITARP experience will change the way I teach astronomy. Having spent 5 days meeting and discussing authentic scietific research with so many people from many different facilities was extremely rejuvinating as an educator.

  • Laura

    I saw kids rise to a challenge and meet it – they learned a lot from the process, each other, and the experience – in ways they could not get in a regular classroom setting at home.

  • Novatne

    By far, the most interesting part of my entire NITARP experience is the scientific method applied to the discovery process.
