Science You Can’t See

Science You Can’t See introduces students to the work of three scientists, each of whom studies a phenomenon that cannot be observed directly. Karen Chin studies dinosaurs, Edward Saade investigates the ocean floor, and Farid El Gabaly uses an electron microscope to make images of magnetic atoms. In order to answer their questions, these scientists must make inferences based on evidence. The book also highlights the ways that using models can help scientists make accurate inferences. Science You Can’t See models an important aspect of the nature of science for students—making sound inferences based on evidence.
