These would be supervised projects either for work-study or credit.

My plan was to mentor the initial idea and creation and help the students submit
PRs. For most, this will be their first interaction with Github.

My hope would be students that are passionate about the same topic could
collaborate. I've had students collaborate on topic ideas for small projects
that worked very well.

I would plan to keep the How-to as an engineering application. It shouldn't
detract from the underlying numerical work.
