Abstract. The effectiveness of risk mitigation also depends on how well-prepared and informed society is about the risk itself. The younger generation plays a key role in the scientific awareness of society, representing both the future of society and a conduit to reach and educate their families. We developed a didactic experience, based on Serious Games, dedicated to seismic risk that was tested and, then, implemented during the whole COVID-19 pandemic.

Before the start and at the end of any of these activities, an evaluation phase was carried out to assess the learning experience and the effectiveness of the science communication technique.

Short summary
We developed an educational protocol on seismic risk dedicated to high school students combining a seminar with a serious game. By using an evaluation protocol, we managed to assess the impact of our protocol when communicating and teaching the concept of seismic risk on both risk perception and interest in science and geophysics. The results are very encouraging and show that the students perceived the protocol as effective both in the basic concepts of seismology and in risk perception.
