We’re shaking things up at the Koshland Science Museum with our earthquake and disaster preparedness community event! Bring the whole family and join us for a free program featuring hands-on activities and demonstrations from organizations such as NOAA’s Weather Ready Nation, the IRIS Consortium, Smithsonian Science Education Center, and the Virginia Task Force 1 Urban Search and Rescue Team. Create your own earthquake, play the Disaster Detector game, see K-9 search and rescue demonstrations, and more!
From 1:00-2:00pm, try your hand at surviving a simulated disaster in our Extreme Event Game. This fast-paced role-playing game gives you a taste of what it takes to build community resilience in the face of disaster. Come alone or bring friends; game can accommodate up to 48 players and no prior knowledge is required!
Registration is recommended, but not required.
