Welcome to COSEE Alaska!
Beginning in 2008, we became a center in a national network of centers for ocean sciences education excellence COSEE, aimed at helping ocean scientists reach broad audiences with their research. We're a regional center (Alaska) with a theme of People, Oceans and Climate Change, focused on weaving together traditional knowledge and western science to share place-based knowledge of ocean climate change in the north.
COSEE Alaska is a close-knit team of ocean scientists, communicators and educators from the Alaska Ocean Observing System, University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, UAF Center for Cross Cultural Studies, Alaska Sea Grant, and the Alaska SeaLife Center.
We engage ocean scientists, teachers, informal educators and community members in the region in a broad range of programs, including statewide ocean science fairs, teacher workshops, expanded Communicating Ocean Science Workshops and hands-on sessions for scientists at the Alaska Marine Science Symposium, plus distance learning and virtual field trips through our website.
Working closely with ocean scientists, educators and coastal community members, COSEE Alaska seeks to enhance ocean and climate change literacy in formal and informal audiences and the public.
