Sunken Treasures - Shipwrecks of the Great Lakes

by  Challenger Learning Center (Rochester, New York)

Program image

The Great Lakes are an amazing resource often overlooked by our society. Over 20% of all of the worlds fresh water is contained within these 5 enormous lakes. However, the Great Lakes are also the resting place for over 5000 shipwrecks. These wrecks offer us an amazing opportunity to study the past and take a unique look at historical relics. Many of these wrecks have a direct link to relevant and important social factors, including storms, wars, navigational challenges and human error.
