Taking the Plunge: Designing Submarines
Presenter: Michelle Sedberry

This workshop will connect students' understanding of density and real world application. This unit will be applicable for 3rd-8th grade teachers. This unit introduces students to the field of ocean engineering through the storybook Despina Makes a Splash, about girl in Greece who designs a submersible to retrieve lost diving goggles. Students learn about sounding poles and sonar as they map a section of ocean floor. Then they apply their knowledge of density, floating, and sinking to design their own submersible, equip it with research instruments, and retrieve packages from a model ocean floor.
