The Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence is a NETWORK of regional centers created to…

  • promote the development of effective partnerships between research scientists and educators.
  • disseminate effective ocean sciences programs and the best practices that do not duplicate but rather build on existing resources.
  • promote a vision of ocean education as a charismatic, interdisciplinary vehicle for creating a more scientifically literate workforce and citizenry.


Participate in professional development programs and join scientists as they study the Great Lakes. Bring materials, activities and experiences back to your classroom.
