  • NITARP 2015 proposal review April 30, 2015

    Many NITARP alumni helped us out with reviewing the NITARP 2015 proposals!  Scientists who helped include B. Berriman, J. Krick, P. Lowrance, P. McGehee, R. Millan-Gabet, B. Rusholme, and J. van Eyken. Thanks to all!

  • August 2011 updates for Ms. Mallory August 15, 2011

    Ms. Mallory made a YouTube video, which describes briefly some other questions students might have about astronomy, and then briefly discusses the importance of finding new young stars. It also lightly encompasses the currently very active planet/habitable zone aspect of finding previously unknown planets around stars.

  • March 2011 updates for Ms. Mallory
  • October 2010 updates for Ms. Mallory October 15, 2010

    Ms. Mallory's students will be giving a presentation at the Pierce College Astronomical Society on Oct. 1 about their NITARP experiences.

    Ms. Mallory also summarized their team's Summer experiences in a ppt that was widely distributed at Pierce College, from the president on down, and was very well-received! It was featured on the College's home page for a few weeks and got a feature story in the college newspaper.

  • Participation in NITARP for me is like a partial return to Grad School. Direct exposure to data is invigorating; applying knowledge newly acquired and thus understanding how part of the Universe works is why I entered the sciences!
