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.
