About the class
Join David G. Concannon and the Discovery Center of Idaho as we explore the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and the wreck of R.M.S. Titanic! How are Titanic artifacts collected and restored? Is the spirit of exploration still alive and well? And how can we keep the memory of Titanic's crew and passengers alive for generations to come?
