COSEE Great Lakes is the only Center located on the North Coast of the U.S. Our “ocean” is the freshwater inland sea that contains 20% of the world’s supply of fresh surface water. We are the link between salt and fresh for the COSEE Network, and between aquatic scientists and educators in the eight-state Great Lakes region.
COSEE Great Lakes was established to demonstrate the ocean-like importance and science qualities of the North Coast, and to connect regional educators with researchers for enhancing science education. We offer:
Summer workshops aboard ship, on shore, and in tropical marine environments;
Student group scholarships for participation in GL/marine partner programs;
Training of regional scientists at conferences and in their workplaces; and
Curriculum materials for Great Lakes learning of marine concepts.
