The Rediscovery Expedition of the Lady Elgin

Take your students along on the Milwaukee Public Museum’s field expedition to the Lady Elgin. Known as the Titanic of the Great Lakes this historic paddleboat steamer sank in Lake Michigan in 1860. The expedition begins the week of September 8th, 2008 with a live interactive videoconference where your students become the official storytellers/reporters of this exciting rediscovery expedition. They will see and hear from the divers first hand, and will be able to interact by asking questions. Then they will explore with the expedition team the artifacts, ROV data and maps to uncover what happened September 8th, 1860 discovering who was onboard and why, and learn how this disaster connects to their hometown!

We are recruiting students from Duluth MN! Anyone???
