National cosee network l.jpg
National COSEE Network

The National COSEE Network is a network of regional centers that act locally, regionally and nationally.


National cosee goals l.jpg
National COSEE Goals

  • Promote the development of effective partnerships between research scientists and educators;

  • Disseminate effective ocean sciences programs and best practices that build on existing resources;

  • Promote a vision of ocean education as a charismatic, interdisciplinary vehicle for fostering scientific literacy

Paddle to the sea l.jpg
Paddle-to-the-Sea

COSEE Great Lakes uses Paddle-to-the-Sea as a working theme, dealing with progressions – from fresh to salt water, from watershed to sea; and with progress – in water quality, science, technology and ecosystem management.
