Operation Safe Passage (OSP) is an exciting role playing experience for groups of all ages. Players learn how Soldiers solve problems using geography, science, technology, engineering, and math. Squads train by playing a series of increasingly challenging games. After training, they test their new skills in a simulation. Squads execute a humanitarian mission on the fictional Belmore Island. Following an earthquake, they repair bridges, deliver emergency supplies, and rescue civilians. Teamwork is key to success. Players receive ongoing feedback by earning badges along the way. Walk in the boots of Soldiers and use your G-STEM skills to save Belmore Island.
