Cooper G/T students wrap up semester with Titanic Extravaganza

LUBBOCK, TEXAS (KCBD) - The students of Lubbock Cooper's Gifted and Talented programs took their learning to the next level. Thursday night, they went on an educational romantic trip back in time.

G/T students, their parents, and honored guests attended a recreation of the last first class dinner aboard the Titanic. Even Captain Smith joined passengers for the evening of music and fine dining.

The kids spent the spring semester studying "systems." And teacher, Darla Dunn, says the doomed ocean liner was one big system, containing many smaller ones: including scientific, economic, and social.

Thursday's dinner was a culmination of a semester's worth of eager learning. And those young and old looked the part. "The Titanic was a good example and a great story," said Dunn. "People of all ages from young children to adults are always fascinated by the story of the titanic."

These elementary students attend both Cooper North and Cooper South.
