Who We Are

Welcome to the website of Team Click’d! We are an interdisciplinary group of four students from the Human Computer Interaction Institute and BCSA Intercollege programs at Carnegie Mellon University. For the Fall 2014 semester, we had the amazing opportunity of partnering with the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum to design a part of their upcoming “Very Eric Carle” exhibit. The exhibit, based on the works of famed children’s author/illustrator Eric Carle, will be premiering in June 2015. Our contribution was a prototype of an interactive experience based on his book The Very Clumsy Click Beetle. Here you can find information on each step of our development process. Happy clicking!

The Pittsburgh Children's Museum

The Pittsburgh Children’s Museum is a place that delights and inspires children, where they can take off on fantastic flights of imagination daily, and return to earth to splash in a river, hammer a nail and ink a silkscreen. Named one of the nation’s ten top children’s museums by Parents magazine in 2011, the Museum welcomes nearly 250,000 visitors annually and provides tons of fun and loads of “real stuff” experiences for play and learning. Hands-on, interactive exhibit areas and experiences that inspire joy, creativity and curiosity include The Studio, Theater, Waterplay, Nursery, and Backyard. In October 2011 the Museum opened its newest permanent exhibit area MAKESHOP - a space where kids and adults can build and tinker with old and new technologies, exciting projects and cutting-edge media.
