Award-Winning "Extreme Event" Game Teaches Risk and Resilience

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-faced disaster simulation. Developed by the National Academy of Sciences' Koshland Science Museum (now LabX) in collaboration with the ResilientAmerica Roundtable, Extreme Event's content draws on recommendations from the seminal National Research Council report Disaster Resilience: A National Imperative and has been reviewed by experts and staff of the National Academies.
