PROJECT TEAM : 

I worked with a team of six Carnegie Mellon University students from different disciplines to create this game for Mountainview Elementary over the course of 16 weeks.  Our goal was to create a game that could help elementary school students learn more about the aquatic biome, and feel excited to seek out further information outside the classroom.
