October 30: Extreme Event Challenge

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.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students & fellows (includes refreshments). Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended. Buy tickets at or by calling the Koshland Science Museum at (202) 334-1201.
