Education & Outreach

Professor Marconnet teaches a variety of courses at Purdue. She has developed interactive activities for several courses (ME 315 - Introduction to Heat and Mass Transfer, ME 415 - Energy Systems Engineering, and ME 505 - Intermediate Heat Transfer) in Jupyter. You can access these through the Google Colab.
