Scientists and Engineers Are CONFIDENT (Grades 3–5)

by: Donna Farland-Smith and Julie Thomas

In this lesson, students learn that scientists and engineers are confident. They read about explorer Jacques Cousteau in the book Manfish: A Story of Jacques Cousteau. After reading, they use a Vernier Go!Motion probe to chart a simulated ocean floor and build a model to demonstrate how air–water exchanges allow submarines to dive deep into oceans. 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.
