A Thermodynamics Short Course for a Summer Outreach ProgramThis paper outlines a summer four week course that was designed for minority sophomoreengineering students. This course centered on enduring understandings of thermodynamics suchas the first and second laws. The course also connected the relevant thermodynamic concepts tostudents’ prior understanding of physics (i.e. conservation of energy) and chemistry (i.e. idealgas law). Finally, the course aligned pedagogy, assessment, and content. The design of thecourse, course outcomes, and future improvements will be discussed.
