Consortium for Ocean Science Exploration and Engagement (COSEE)

Transforming the Learning and Doing of Ocean Science

Key Inner Space Center Staff involved with COSEE are:

  • Gail Scowcroft, COSEE Executive Director
  • Andrea Gingras, COSEE Coordinator

COSEE is the go-to network that brings ocean scientists and education professionals  together to advance ocean education, broaden the impacts of ocean science research, and develop the workforce needed to meet tomorrow’s challenges.  

COSEE continues to provide and improve its signature programs, research experiences for educators, professional development for scientists, and online resources and tools to support international ocean science education.  

Formally, the federally-funded Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence, COSEE is now an international, membership-based nonprofit, the Consortium for Ocean Science Exploration and Engagement.
