Include up to 36 pupils for a 5-hour crisis

Some of the most emotive, dramatic and exciting movies are disaster movies!  It is the best way to imagine the crisis situations faced in arguably the most challenging of all our event programmes.  Bunkered combines creative, critical and strategic thinking with science, maths, technology and citizenship.

An asteroid, as monitored by the real-life NEO programme, is hurtling toward Earth!  Our governments need to take action and plan to try to save lives, but what factors will influence their decisions about who to save and how to do it?

Teams of students represent different countries solving these problems.  They will need to finance and design the bunkers that will bury selected members of society in a bid to keep them alive.  But who do they try to save?  Participants need to consider job types, skill-sets, ages, genders and genetics in order to populate the bunkers.  Then they represent these people, in their struggle to survive, when the asteroid hits!

Bunkered is an event for students in Year 7 – 13.  It demonstrates how successfully STEM subjects can be combined with Citizenship.

"Bunkered was fantastic! It kept our students engaged throughout and even those who had been before learned a lot. The activities were great and did challenge our more able students in the group. The variety of critical thinking, logic & practical skills was just right. Thanks for another well organised & educational day! We were so pleased that it helped our students to bond as well."
