I teach a course called Physics for Future Presidents.  We did the flood scenario. The students had to scramble. They had to deal with these real-life circumstances. They were very engaged, very excited by this and I think they learned some interesting lessons.”

“Extreme Event is a simulation that allows emergency managers to go out to the community and they can actually participate in solving an emergency scenario. “

“It is great because with our school and the population we teach, we think a lot about differentiation and this game does so much to be able to serve the needs of different learners. The more we have simulations and experiences like the ones you have designed, and it really is expertly designed, the more students feel that they are doing things that relate to their world.”

“The Extreme Event Game is an incredibly effective tool that was brought to us by the National Academy of Sciences and it has been a smash hit ever since… This game is quick, it’s easy, it’s fun.”

“We were hit by a catastrophic event called Hurricane Harvey… and I thought it’s the game playing out right in front of me! Whether it’s communicating, or looking at data, or using technology, there’s a way that you approach and view the world to gather information to make informed decisions. The Extreme Event Game is one of those opportunities to express all of those skills.”
