Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence


Center for Ocean Science Education Excellence COSEE Ocean Learning Communities mission is to:

Bring together many communities (marine volunteer, scientific, educational, and business) to learn together about the oceans.

Help these communities learn to communicate clearly and equitably between themselves and their own communities around ocean-related issues and research.

Encourage innovation and creativity as learning communities build partnerships with us and among themselves.

Seek and build strong models of non-traditional ocean learning partnerships that can be shared throughout the COSEE Network.

Educate scientists, volunteers, and teachers about how people learn and its connection with ocean science education.
