Scientists and Universities

MARE has a number of programs and projects designed to help scientists like you share your knowledge and skills with the public and K-12 classrooms, to provide mechanisms to address your education and public outreach needs, and to share the broader impact of your research. Some opportunities include:

: Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence

The goal of COSEE is to connect ocean scientists and educators to promote ocean literacy nationwide. COSEE California develops tools, programs, and courses that are in widespread use throughout the National COSEE Network. With 12 Centers and a Central Coordinating Office located throughout the US, each Center is a consortium of one or more ocean science research institutions, informal science education organizations, and formal education entities. The COSEE program is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation with support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In addition to the work by our Centers, we engage in Network-level activities such as Scientist-Educator Partnerships, Ocean Literacy, and promoting Ocean Careers.
