Ms. Sartore was part of NITARP 2011.
Despite the global pandemic, many NITARP alumni helped us out with reviewing the NITARP 2020 proposals! Scientists who helped include Tiffany Meshkat, Patrick Lowrance, Mike Werner, Seppo Laine, and Julian van Eyken. Thanks to all!
All four main NITARP 2013 teams submitted research proposals. Several NITARP alumni helped review them.
Ms. DeVeau and Ms. Sartore attended the RBSP (Radiation Belt Storm Probes) workshop, and shared their NITARP experience with about 30 of the teachers attending the workshop.
Ms. Sartore brought 2 students with her to present their posters at the AAS. She and her students were asked to present at the late January School Board meeting, and did a great job! She also got some good local press.
We are officially announcing our 2011 class! Here they all are.
[NITARP] is an amazing program you’ve put together! I feel like you’ve given us the keys, and we’ve got a license to explore the universe.
Student involvement in authentic research is an idea whose time has come.
In its current form, anyone with moderate computer skills and high school physics can download, explore, and begin to understand available data.
I can't wait to get started, and neither can my students!
