Storm force

Source(s):  Loughborough University

"Storm Force" is an online game intended for children over 12, but it can also be played by adults. Participants play as a cadet with the fictional Storm Force – an organisation dedicated to researching storm surges to better prepare at-risk locations. Each level, the players must battle against the clock to evacuate citizens from the waterfront whilst also collecting supplies and valuable data.

Topical information is scattered throughout the game, teaching players what causes coastal flooding, how to spot the warning signs and what they can do to save lives. "Storm Force" also introduces players to underwater acoustic signals, which are generated by storms as they approach the coast.
