Since 2004 COSEE Networked Ocean World (COSEE NOW) has conducted an annual online scientist survey to gather data on the education involvement, practices and needs of scientists at current and future ocean observing systems. Their goal is to improve the exchange of data and teaching practices between scientists and educators. This report offers answers to: What do scientists think about coastal sciences education & outreach? Are they engaged? And, in what ways are they contributing?
Individuals planning education programs or products, establishing partnerships among scientists and educators, or interested in improving their education and outreach activities should find this report interesting and useful.
