On Thursday, March 29, I spoke to a group of preservice math and science teachers at the University of North Texas Teach North Texas Program and shared information with them about NITARP and the importance of doing authentic research with their students. I shared the NITARP website and showed the posters online.
Ms. Stalnaker got some great local coverage.
This experience was life changing! It has changed the way I teach everything, not just astronomy.
NITARP has transformed my life and the way I teach, so it's difficult to find anything that has NOT been influenced by this experience!
