The Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) Program
Date: Saturday, March 21, 2009
Event: National Science Teachers Association National Convention
Location: Regent and St. Charles Room, New Orleans Marriott Hotel
Since 2002, the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) have worked to increase understanding of the ocean and its relevance to society. Primarily funded through the National Science Foundation, the COSEE Network promotes partnerships between research scientists and educators, disseminates high-quality ocean sciences education resources, and promotes ocean science as a charismatic vehicle for learning at any age.
On Saturday, March 21, COSEE sessions will highlight activities and products designed for classroom science teachers. Session participants will come away with links to real time data, relevant scientific resources, lesson plans, information on regional programs, and connections to a nationwide network of scientists and educators who are dedicated to improving ocean literacy.
