Introducing High School Students to Chemical Engineering Kinetics With a Simple Experiment-Based Smartphone Education Application

Simone Stanley, Patrick Ymele-Leki

Abstract


A community outreach project was integrated in a District of Columbia public schools summer internship program for students from underrepresented minorities in STEM. The project introduced these students to fundamental engineering principles by leveraging a smartphone application (App) so readily accessible and attractive to them that it boosted their learning interest. Kinetics experiments using the App features were developed and made suitable for pre-college students by undergraduate mentors.
