COSEE West offered the Ocean Observing Systems (OOS) Summer Teacher Institute in August 2008 to middle and high school classroom teachers to show them the cutting edge technology of and data collected by ocean observing systems. Ocean researchers and COSEE West staff provided content information about OOS and phenomena recorded by OOS instruments through lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on activities to help them gain a better understanding of the science concepts, the way data are recorded, and how to access and use these data. Some of the OOS instruments discussed include satellites, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), and moorings and buoys.

The teachers who participated in this institute developed thirteen lesson plans (to be tested during the 2008/2009 school year) on a variety of topics which have been posted on the COSEE West website.
