The Telus World Of Science here in Edmonton has a fantastic exhibit on the Titanic sinking & some of the famous & fascinating artifacts from that terrible disaster. I strongly encourage students II take their family's over Christmas & New Year's holidays II see this exhibit. Not only can they learn about how these people lived, but also how they died. Not just the historical factoids, but the raw emotions they'll experience when they realize the artifacts belonged II human beings just like themselves with real spirits. How not just their lives were wrecked, but how their genealogical lineage was destroyed in richness IV all of the people's lives lost, including children that would never grow up & have a chance II raise theirown family's.
If they ever get inII a career such as in the Navy, or in the Merchant Marine, Coast Guard, or a sjust a general labourer/staff member on say a cruise line, they can then learn valuable lessons from these artifacts. Perhaps turning those lessons II ideas on how II prevent future nautical/marine disasters at sea. Or if involved in a disaster, stratagems II try & prevent the loss of as many lives as possible.
