"The Astronomical Teacher Training Institute is a multicultural initiative for educators to support one another across geographical and cultural borders. ATTI engages teachers of students of all ages with hands-on projects and curriculum development tools to rejuvenate scientific education for kids and adults alike using the universal principals of astronomy. With special attention to include indigenous people in scientific education, ATTI is building a multicultural community of scientists who are willing to explore culture and cosmology together."
"ATTI trip was a complete fun and learning package for all of us. I would like to thank Ken and Bruce for their precious time. Also I would like to thank, Tushar Sharma for organizing such an impeccable trip."Nikhil Bhatia - MITACS Summer Student, University of Calgary
"ATTI Visit gave me a deeper understanding of astronomy. Amateur astronomers talked about their knowledge of astronomy and shared their amazing pictures of the galaxy. We also had a chance to use a delicate telescope from All Star Telescope. With the help from the owner of All Star Telescope, we were able to observe stars and the Milky Way by using the telescope."Yuting He - Graduate Research Student, University of Calgary
"It was truly a different experience observing the night sky with the ATTI members. I felt thrilled locating different stars and planets. I have been involved with night sky observation activities for quite sometimes from Bangladesh being a member of Bangladesh Astronomical Association (BAA). I want to thank ATTI for arranging this trip and wish to participate to all their events in future."Sharif Abdur Rahman - RF and Microwave Engineer, University of Calgary
"If there is one word to describe my experience with Radio Jove, I would say “fascinating”. I got to meet people who are all passionate about a project and are willing to learn and further explore radio astronomy.. I appreciate the efforts that were put by my mentor Tushar and my fellow colleagues in the project to simplify and clarify the concepts that were vague while going through the project."Sara Awara - 3rd Year Student, University of Calgary
"Listening to the sound of heavenly bodies makes one wonder, how far we have come as a species and yet only understands a fraction of what’s out here. I was fortunate to mentor in high school by Tushar for hands on radio astronomy knowledge sharing."Arjun Nair- B.Tech Student,BITS Goa,India
”I as a high school student took up a project in radio astronomy under NASA Radio Jove and received a grant from SARA for completing it. By the end we were able to successfully observe a meteor shower using the setup and also design antennae’s with better gains and usage.”Ayush Raina- B.Tech Student Indian Institute of Technology,Jodhpur,India
