This NSF/ONR-NOPP/NOAA-Sea Grant funded COSEE:CGOM presentation will review “best practices” and lessons learned during its first two years—based on individual and collective states’ program involvement with middle school teachers, research scientists, and informal educators. Implementation strategies which will be discussed include: participant recruitment, “face to face” and online graduate courses and two-day workshops, as well as teachers-to-sea, website development, and cognitive and affective formation and summative evaluations. This session will involve several, brief presentations; and oceanographic and coastal processes resource materials will be distributed.
