This arcade is a portal to games and interactive activities focused on ocean and air themes. It highlights the science and the activities of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other agencies and organizations promoting environmental stewardship.
This serious game is based on the ecosystem of a United States west coast estuary and follows a human, Valerie, as she encounters Oscar the sea otter, and the Claminator, a geoduck clam. The friends are challenged to learn about the factors that produce healthy estuaries, food webs, and why estuaries are essential to ocean life and to humans.
This game helps students address the most important issues facing loggerhead sea turtles on land and in the ocean, and gives them practice making difficult decisions involving multiple stakeholders.
