Helped needed with Lattice Boltzmann methods

I am an under graduate mechanical engineering student.
I was assigned a project on Lattice Boltzmann methods for my summer internship . The material I found on the internet looks like graduate and PhD stuff.
Could someone prescribe me some beginner material to start with? Like some non-mathematical stuff to get the essence of what LBMs do?

Also, what are the prerequisites to understand these methods? Should I be well-versed with statistical mechanics and Hamiltonian mechanics? Sorry for being so naive but I am an absolute beginner with these methods and CFD. The intern starts off in May and I am supposed to have a good idea of these methods by then.
