In 2002, NSF's Division of Ocean Sciences sought to establish
Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence (COSEE) - a national
network responsible for facilitating collaboration and communication
between ocean science researchers and educators.
WHOI, in association with the New England Aquarium and the University
of Massachusetts System, was selected as one of seven
centers nationwide, and funded for five years.
For more information on COSEE-New England activities, visit www.cosee-ne.net
WHOI is working with the scientific community to support education
and outreach initiatives by:
- Providing professional development opportunities for researchers
through workshops, seminars, and online resources
- Identifying and publicizing programs that would benefit from
scientist participation or input
- Facilitating education and outreach collaborations through
services provided by science education specialists.

opportunities, please contact:
