Jules Verne was one of the seminal authors of the science fiction genre, taking readers along extraordinary journeys inspired by the latest technologies of the time. In this unit, students will plan a voyage following along the story from 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. They will discover the science and technologies of modern deep sea exploration and how the oceans have changed since readers first set foot upon the Nautilus.
