Enhance your classroom's Titanic lesson with these resources and activities.
ResourcesImmersion Learning's Return to Titanic program includes hands-on activities, videos and interactive online games that engage youth in science, technology and exploration. Youth will join Dr. Robert Ballard and a team of scientists as they return to the wreck of Titanic to determine how much the ship has deteriorated since its initial discovery in 1985. Science topics covered include scale drawings, buoyancy, model-building, weathering, photomosaics, remotely operated vehicles, latitude and longitude, coordinate grids, communication technology, radio waves, conservation and careers. Online resources for the program are available on Immersion's Return to Titanic webpage, and hard copies of the print curriculum and accompanying CD and DVD are available for purchase. The Return to Titanic print curriculum contains youth reading selections, activity masters and comprehensive educator notes for the program's 12 hands-on activities. The program is appropriate for use with youth in grades 1 through 8. Learn about Dr. Ballard's 2004 return to Titanic. Titanic Stories is designed to direct you to the most authentic information and experiences about Titanic on the island of Ireland.

Concept: Factors such as temperature, lack of light, and water pressure (just to name a few) make it difficult to explore the oceans. This experiment will illustrate to students that an increase in depth of water produces increased pressure.
Hypothesis Question: Will the water coming from each hole travel the same distance or will some of the jets travel farther than others?
