Welcome to the CoVis Project's Web Site!

This is the website for the Learning through Collaborative Visualization (CoVis) Project. CoVis is a community of thousands of students, hundreds of teachers, and dozens of researchers all working together to find new ways to think about and practice science in the classroom.

The work of the CoVis Project was completed in 1998. This research is being continued under the auspices of the Center for Learning Technologies in Urban Schools and a number of other research projects in the Learning Sciences Program at Northwestern. This web site now serves as an archive of CoVis materials.
