The Survival grid offers three simulations designed to help individuals and teams learn about how to face severe difficulties and work together to go beyond what is imagined as possible. Visitors arrive at the Expedition Club to learn about the famous Ernest Shackleton expedition and how against all odds every crew member of the Endurance survived losing their ship, months of isolation and hunger in the Antarctic, before being rescued off of Elephant Island. The second simulation takes place on Elephant Island and involves participants working in teams to determine courses of action for avoiding hazards. And finally, the third simulation takes place on the grid at a DC-3 crash site whereby participants must locate, prioritize, and offer rationales for use of crash items necessary for survival. Based on simulation play feedback is offered to each player regarding their odds for survival. The genesis of this activity comes from training offered for Special Operations teams.
