Announcing a New Program Series on Community Resilience

Fri, 12/27/2013 - 11:49am -- Anonymous

Everyone has a story to tell about their experience of a natural or human-made disaster. Why do some communities bounce back and others do not? How can we prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters?
 
The Koshland Science Museum will launch a new Science Social program with three events in fall 2013 focused on community resilience.
 
Wednesday, October 9, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Is Community Resilience Real or Fiction?

Is building community resilience possible or just wishful thinking? Mix it up with disaster expert Gerald Galloway and join a lively discussion about community resilience. No preparation or expertise required—bring your questions and ideas.
$10/adults, $7/students

Wednesday, October 30, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.      
Extreme Event Challenge

Immerse yourself in a challenging group game in which your team must prioritize and collaborate to survive a fictitious disaster. With fun group dynamics and a surprising twist, the game will raise real-world questions about what it takes to make our communities more resilient.
