Ok, we have a situation developing and we need your help...

At 08:57 this morning, the dormant volcano Fitzroy's Peak started erupting volcanic ash into the atmosphere, threatening the inhabitants of Green Island.

Emergency responders are on hand to co-ordinate the evacuation efforts, but they need your forecasting skills to tell them where the Volcanic Ash Cloud will go. eVACuate! is a game brought to you by the Met Office to celebrate National Science & Engineering Week. Can you use the power of maths, meteorology and your mind to keep the citizens of Green Island out of danger?

Of course, we'll give you as much help as we can along the way, so here are some downloads and resources you'll need before you start;


Start the game!

eVACuate! is brought to you as part of National Science & Engineering Week. Each March NSEW shines a light on how the sciences, technology, engineering and maths relate to our everyday lives, and helps to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers with fun and participative events and activities.
