The Titanic Schools Project is a cross-community organization founded by a number of former shipyard workers in 2007. The aim of TSP is to promote the Engineering achievements of ‘Titanic’ to children and young people from all over the world. Students from age seven to undergraduate level undertake project work and attend various events organized each year to celebrate Belfast’s unique shipbuilding heritage.
Now entering its fifth year the TSP has already involved schools from Northern Ireland, France, Germany, New Zealand, Pakistan and USA. Almost 2,000 children have been involved with presentations, art exhibitions and field trips.
As the 2012 centenary celebration approaches, the membership of the Titanic Schools Project will expand, with increasing numbers of both local and international schools taking part. The annual Launch Day Festival commemorates the engineering achievements of 31st May 1911 and gives an excellent opportunity to showcase the universal appeal of the Titanic phenomenon to children of all ages.
