COSIA Network

The COSIA Network is a cross-disciplinary community that brings together ocean and climate scientists in institutions of higher education (IHEs) and educators in informal science education institutions (ISEIs) to communicate ocean science concepts and research to the public. The Network continues the efforts initiated by collaborations for developing the Communicating Ocean Sciences to Informal Audiences course, and is creating regional hubs in Southern California, Virginia, and New Jersey to disseminate the Communicating Ocean Sciences courses, Scientist Workshops for research scientists, and Reflecting on Practice program for informal science educators.

COSIA Network is funded by the National Science Foundation for Communicating Ocean Sciences Informal Educators Network under Grant #DRL-0917614
