The museum is closing early today. We will reopen on Thursday, May 19, 2016.
The museum is currently closed as our AC is out of order. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Why do we need to measure community resilience to disasters? What data should be gathered to help communities measure their progress? Join disaster experts Susan Cutter and Warren C. Edwards for a lively exchange about what works and does not work when measuring resilience based on their experience with communities. Then dive into the topic with other program participants and suggest ways to ensure that measuring resilience is meaningful to local communities.
Immerse yourself in a challenging group game in which you 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.
Are you looking for a fun and interactive way to teach your students about natural disasters? Need a new tool to engage your volunteers or emergency management staff in conversations about resilience? Want to know how to break the ice at your next community event? Then join us Thursday, April 12 at 2:00pm EDT for a webinar about the Extreme Event game!
