Ocean industries hold many opportunities for employment for the future Nova Scotian work force. However, Nova Scotian junior high students have a poor understanding and a lack of interest in Nova Scotia’s available ocean careers. Ocean career education through online interactive games could increase Nova Scotian students’ interest in ocean careers. By having students try the games and offering us their feedback through surveys we can determine how effective these online games are for increasing student’s interest in ocean related careers. We will investigate how an individual student’s race, gender, age, and individual identity may affect their response to the games in order to better engage underrepresented demographics in ocean careers.
