Description

Extreme Event is an award-winning in-person role-playing game that gives participants a taste of what it takes to build community resilience in the face of disaster. Players work together to make decisions and solve problems during an engaging, fast-paced disaster simulation. There are three scenarios from which to choose: earthquake, hurricane, or flood, according to the desired resilience training.

Any group of 12-48 adults or teens can play Extreme Event. It has been used by community groups, in classrooms, and as part of volunteer and teacher training activities. It is cross-disciplinary, so fits well in many different contexts. Developed by the National Academy of Sciences’ Marian Koshland Science Museum (now LabX) in collaboration with the Resilient America Roundtable, Extreme Event’s content draws on recommendations from the seminal 2012 National Academies consensus study report Disaster Resilience: A National Imperative and has been reviewed by experts and staff of the National Academies.
