This Center involves a network of environmental researchers, K-12 educators, education centers and the general public in the greater Los Angeles area, and particularly the LA Unified School District (LAUSD). The LAUSD is the nation’s second largest district and most ethnically diverse. COSEE-West is dedicated to increasing science literacy, environmental awareness and the number of students who choose to pursue science careers.  We contribute to environmental education in the metropolitan Los Angeles area through participation in K-12 teacher workshops and COSEE-sponsored community research lectures to promote the understanding of microbial life in the oceans.
