Program and Activities Include:
Ocean Science Concentration For Pre-Service Educators At Indian River State College
The ocean science based curriculum and research program focuses on improving the content knowledge of students pursuing a B.S. degree in Science Education.
- Ocean Science Courses
- Research Experience for Pre-Service Teachers (REPT) Program
In partnership with ocean scientists and their research institutions across the state, COSEE Florida hosts a variety of educator workshops. These workshops connect current research to Sunshine State Science Standards with hands-on activities that are designed to be easily and cheaply replicated in middle and high school science classrooms and are available as resources.
- Water As Habitat Educator Workshops
- Ocean Science Concept
Ocean Science Concept Recordings (OSCRs) are intended as resources for teachers that will encourage them to bring ocean science into their classrooms. COSEE Florida’s first OSCR on tides explains a difficult concept – one that many college students misunderstand – at a level that middle school students can comprehend.
