DOWNLOAD THE RESEARCH PAPER
Click here to download our new research paper with a very long title “Earth Girl Volcano: characterizing and conveying volcanic hazard complexity in an interactive casual game of disaster preparedness and response.” Co-authored by Isaac Kerlow, Gabriela Pedreros and Helena Albert. Published in 2020 in the Geosciences Communication Journal of the European Geosciences Union.
This casual strategy game is focused on hazard preparedness and response skills, and it was developed by an interdisciplinary team. The interactive game is inspired by real-life situations in communities located near volcanoes particularly throughout the Pacific Ring of Fire. The game allows players to prepare for emergency evacuations and respond during volcanic hazards such as ash fall, mudflows and burning clouds. It places players in the role of an emergency manager before and during a volcanic episode. The simple and straightforward gameplay engages our core audience of 7-13 kids and adults.
Volcanoes are majestic but they also pose a serious hazard to nearby communities, and the Earth Girl Volcano app provides an environment for proactive learning about volcanic risk. Players can experience and explore a variety of volcanic hazards and evacuation scenarios including lightly populated small villages, towns with high-rise buildings and even industrial parks. Players can explore, think and experiment outside the traditional learning setting. This makes Earth Girl Volcano the perfect companion for informal learning about volcanic risk, disaster management and preparedness.
The side-scrolling game has colorful graphics and 27 different experiences, and it runs on Windows or iOS computers and Android or iOS tablets. The game is scheduled to be available soon in three additional languages spoken throughout the Pacific Ring of Fire: Indonesian, Spanish, and French.
Earth Girl Tsunami

It was inspired by the kids who live in coastal communities throughout Asia, and by the stories told by survivors of recent tsunamis. earthgirl2.com
