RBSE Journal Articles

The original Spitzer program drew all of its participants from the RBSE program. When RBSE was still running at NOAO, they hosted a refereed journal specifically for student research. Here are articles in that journal that emerged from work with the Spitzer Teacher Program.

2009 RBSE Journal:

  • Identifying T Tauri Stars Using Small Optical Telescopes by Jennifer Butchart, Oil City Area Senior High School, Oil City, PA, Teacher: Mr. Tim Spuck, pages 24-32.
  • Investigating Star Formation in Lynds Cloud 981 by Rachele M. Siegel Oil City Area Senior High School, Oil City, PA, Teacher: Tim Spuck, pages 33-45.

2006 RBSE Journal:

  • Micro-Variability of 4c29.45 using the Spitzer Space Telescope and Ground Based Telescopes by Brielle Hinckley
As we feared, the January 2021 American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting is going to be online-only. The kickoff workshop for NITARP 2021 would have been associated with this meeting. Because travel and face-to-face meetings are such an integral part of the NITARP experience, we have decided to not form new NITARP teams in 2021. We expect to have teams in 2022, assuming the pandemic loosens its grip. Please let us know if you wish to be on the mailing list to be notified when the application is available.
