Vin Urbanowski is part of the NITARP 2016 class. He is also a mentor educator in the NITARP 2019 and 2020/2021 classes.
Some of the students working with Mr. Urbanowski participated in SEES at University of Texas at Austin. (Press release here.)
Many NITARP alumni helped us out with reviewing the NITARP 2018 proposals! Scientists who helped include Babar Ali, Calen Henderson, Tiffany Meshkat, and Julian Van Eyken. Thanks to all!
Sure, I wrote long papers for my masters', but those papers were to scholarship what engineering math is to actual mathematics - just get through it to do your job. Working with you in NITARP, I saw scholarship as a living community. [..] this experience encouraged me to write for the journal of my profession, but even moreso taught me to reach out to others[..]
NITARP totally changed the way I teach, and I am grateful. Spreadsheets and data infuse my lessons. I assign kids to create spreadsheets to demonstrate that they really know how to, for example, apply trig to a problem, and then use those spreadsheets to use their solution to answer a question.
Your ongoing mentorship and availability is unbelievably valuable to me and my kids; NITARP is like a new chapter in my professional life.
Thanks again for NITARP. My whole world is better for it.
I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful experience this week was for me and my students. The skills and knowledge we all picked up were great.
I can't begin to tell you what a wonderful experience this week was for me and my students. The skills and knowledge we all picked up were great. But I wanted to say an especial thanks for the way you made us all feel so welcome in your tribe. It was transformative for our kids to interact with you, to hear your stories and to join you in the work.
