  11. 11. Survivors ● Only over 700 people manage to get on to a boat and survive ● The people who did manage to get on a boat were picked up by the closet ship Carpathia. ● 2 dogs were also saved from the Titanic
  12. 12. Why so many died ● There weren’t enough life boats for even half the crew onboard ● The boats were not fully loaded when they launched, there was one boat which had 12 people on when it was built for 40. ● There was still 2 lifeboats empty when Titanic sank ● A lifeboat drill was Originally planned to take place on board the Titanic on April 14, 1912, but it had been cancelled ● There was a closer ship, but the Captain of that ship was asleep.

  15. 15. Fun Facts Class fares cost $7 5s (equivalent to $608 today) while the cheapest First Class fares cost $23 ($1,928 today). The most expensive First Class suites cost up to $870 ($72,932 today) in high season. Third The Titanic originally was designed to carry 64 lifeboats. To save from cluttering decks, the ship ended up carrying 20 on her maiden voyage. The Titanic's crew failed to fire correct distress signals after hitting the iceberg. Instead, the incorrect rocket pattern signaled to any ship in the area: "I'm having navigation problem. Please stand clear.“ If the ship had hit the berg head first, Titanic probably would have survived because of the strength of its bulkheads.

  17. 17. Self reflect I think I did quite well on this Passion Project. I think I deserve a fully meetings because. I stayed on topic pretty much most of the class time I was given. I think I could of added a bit more detail into this project. Also I could have added a bit more pictures.
