Scientists and Engineers Are COURAGEOUS (Grades 3–5)

by: Donna Farland-Smith and Julie Thomas

In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are courageous. They read about scientist Galileo Galilei in the book Starry Messenger. After reading, they explore lines and curves that are produced by the motion of their bodies. This selection highlights the practice of using mathematics and computational thinking, and it includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, and Index.
