Mr. Kearns writes:

I held a professional development session on March 10th for science and math teachers in the COSMOS cooperative area. We focused mainly on how to access data from IPAC as well as how to integrate data analysis into math classes. Teachers in these corporations are starting to redesign math curriculum to better reflect what math is and what it is used for so there were some great discussions about how to use astronomy data in these classes. Computer science teachers and science teachers were also in attendance to discuss how we could collaborate with the math department in using data in these classes.

The application period is now closed for NITARP 2022. We will release our selection for the 2022 class at the 2022 January AAS.
