In 1915 the Lusitania was making its way from New York to Liverpool when it was attacked and sunk off the coast of Cork costing the lives of over 1,000 people. The sinking caused outrage around the world and impacted on events surrounding the First World War. Using a comic book produced for the Creative Centenaries project, students will examine a 3D model of the liner, exploring the science behind the make-up of the ship and its voyage. Students will then use green screen technology and animation to tell the story of the sinking.
