Simone Stanley successfully completes ThermoHUE cohorts for Summer 2016

Simone Stanley led the second cohort of high school students through her ThermoHUE educational program during the week of July 25, 2016. With two volunteers (Mahtab Waseem & Tariq Johnson), Simone spent four days at Friendship Public Charter School (FPCS) – Tech Prep Academiy, in Southeast, Washington, D.C., introducing fifteen students to chemical kinetics principles through a BEDD-sponsored project.

The ThermoHUE project led by Simone aims to introduce high school students to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields and principles. The project relies on an experiment-based learning education app and hands-on laboratory activities developed by a multidisciplinary team of college students in the School of Engineering and Computer Sciences at Howard University.
