Strong African American Families Social Simulation

PROJECT MISSION

The Strong African American Families (SAAF) Project's Social Simulation Prototype is an instructional software program that will engage rural African American teenagers and their parents within a 3D virtual social context similar to popular computer games like the Sims. Students operating the simulation will take the part of teenagers and parents that are placed in a social context (teenager/parent in the home). Through "first person" roles, they will interact with the environment and attempt to meet a disparate set of goals. These goals are often in conflict, and the students must learn to balance social, physical, familial, and academic needs.
