Quotes

  • I enjoyed the whole week [at my first AAS]. The aspect that was best was connecting with my teammates. The personal contact at this early stage was important.

  • For the teacher, connecting with working scientists and networking with other colleagues has immeasurable value. I plan to utilize these relationships and potentially other projects spawned by them for years to come.

  • I believe having students work with other students from other schools has much value.

  • Being able to be physically present at Caltech and the AAS expanded the impact of this program significantly. It was in these settings, in particular, where one could see how the scientific enterprise typically works and how ideas are often shared.

  • I have experienced a number of well-done programs in having HS teachers and/or students participate in research, and NITARP particularly stands out. I think it is the mix of prep work done in advance by teachers and students, the collaborative format of teachers/students/scientists from different locales, the onsite time at Caltech, and the attendance and presentation of posters at [the] AAS. Each of these elements was important.

  • The NITARP experience was terrific from start to finish – well organized, informative, and unique.
