Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA) is a magnet 3rd through 5th grade academy providing a rigorous academic program in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) subjects. Based on the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS), the comprehensive, STEM magnet program uses a balance of texts and technological resources to provide an education that is challenging at higher levels, and faster-paced, than most traditional elementary learning environments.

Tech Matters seeks organizations that support authentic, experiential learning with a focus on the STEM subjects. The Ocean Quest educational game collaboration is the product of a synergistic relationship between Tech Matters, Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU), and the Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA), who agree learning does not occur in a vacuum.

MCAA, SPSU, and Tech Matters enjoy a rich collaboration experience. After a successful first year, the partnership resulted in an Economics Game in year two that can be adapted to the 3rd through the 5th grade curricula.
