Students prepare for zombie attack

-A A +A

Education > Class teaches students about preparedness

By Tris DeRoma

Floods? Been there. Wildfires? Done that. Power outages? Please. Los Alamos has had its share of all these disaster and hardship events, but there’s one thing it hasn’t prepared for — a zombie apocalypse.
Fortunately, the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos will be addressing this pressing issue all next week through a program called “The Art and Science of Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse.”
The program is a part of the university’s summer Teens College, which is geared to students in grades seven through 10.
This is the first time that associate English professor Mickey Marsee and community education advisor Eileen Gallegos put a program like this together. Despite it being the first time, the program was an initial success, as 77 students signed up for the program. Throughout the week, students will be introduced to forensics, mind control, emergency preparedness, health and first aid. They will also learn about wilderness survival, firemaking and cyber security. They will also learn how to apply “zombie makeup” and be introduced to the exciting world of video game design.
