Welcome Everyone!

Hello, we’re Team Seaweed Salad! We’re a group of five graduate students at Carnegie Mellon’s Entertainment Technology Center.  Our team is fairly diverse with our members representing three nationalities and  with backgrounds in computer science, art, design, and digital media. This semester we’re working with Highmark’s Caring Place and the Allegheny Health Network. Our goal is to create a virtual world that will help children and teens who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We plan to do so by making a safe space through which they can explore and express themselves. On this site you’ll find weekly updates as well as a variety of information about the project itself. Welcome, and please take a look around!
