"We getting teachers involved in real astronomy research with real astronomical data," said Luisa Rebull, an associate research scientist from NASA Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, who coordinates the NITARP program. The goal of NITARP is to inspire and motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as to engage the public in shaping and sharing the experience of exploration and Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Flat Green
"The class of 2010 did some amazing work and we are very proud of them," said Rebull.
DeCoster worked on a team with Steve Howell, National Optical Astronomy Observatory. Niles West seniors Alex Antonow and Aneesh Seghal were also a part of their team. The group worked on variable stars in the infrared region of the spectrum observed by the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope. DeCoster said, "We identified some 250 stars and measured how their light output in the infrared varied over periods of hours. We produced graphs, called light curves, of the light variation over time. Very few stars have had their light curves determined in this region of the electromagnetic spectrum. We found one star from this group that exhibited variation. We are continuing to work on this star to determine more of its properties."

The journey began when DeCoster and Ramseyer attended AAS meetings in Washington, DC in January 2010 to immerse themselves in the project. They and their students spent three full days conducting research at the AAS Science Center at Caltech in the summer of 2010. Along with the other two NITARP groups, they presented their findings last month at the AAS Alexander Mcqueen Boots Sale
Ramseyer was a member of the team paired with Varoujan Gorjian, SSC/Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Ramseyer's students, Niles West High School seniors Eric O'Neill, Niko Xamplas, Rozy Kanjee, Daniel Langer and Benjamin Pichler (Niles West Class of Alexander Mcqueen Heels Wings 2010) were also participants. Their research centered on discovering how supermassive black holes (SMBH) function. These objects exist in the center of every Louboutin Akenana
This program was funded by NASA. NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology, also in Pasadena. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.
NITARP pairs professional astronomers with eighth grade, high school and community college teachers nationwide to show their students how genuine space research gets done. Four NITARP teams used archival observations by NASA Spitzer Space Telescope, an orbiting infrared telescope, as well as other telescopes for analysis and teaching purposes.

elliptical and spiral galaxy, including the Milky Way. The locations of SMBH are known, but not how they function. According to Ramseyer, "Our research tried to determine whether or not the ultraviolet (UV) light being emitted by the accretion disk of the SMBH heats the dust surrounding the accretion disk proportionately. The Spitzer Space telescope imaged the infrared light being emitted by the dust as a consequence of its being heated by the UV light." Ramseyer said that the research found no correlation, due either to lack of data or perhaps the function of SMBH is more complex.
Nearly 60 teachers, students and astronomy educators presented the fruits of their year long labor as participants in NITARP, the NASA/IPAC Teacher Archive Research Program, at the 217th meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) in Seattle, WA from January 9 through January 13. Niles West High School teachers Richard DeCoster and Elizabeth Ramseyer and Niles West students were participants in NITARP and attended the meeting to present their findings.
Ramseyer said of the AAS meeting, "The information received in the lecture showed my students that there are so many more questions to answer in our universe. I believe it also opened their eyes to the life of an astronomer/researcher. It also was an invaluable experience for them to see that it is "OK" to ask questions. Questions are what drive science."
