Description: The CoVis project in K-12 science education enabled high school students to join in collaborative work groups and communicate with university researchers and other scientific experts. Participating students studied atmospheric and environmental sciences - including topics in meteorology and climatology - through project-based activities using state-of-the-art scientific visualization software (pages onsite help you download and install it). This Web site now serves as an archive of CoVis materials. The Geosciences Web Server for teachers provides resources for designing and sharing projects and activities, data and visualization tools, a mentor database, links to many geosciences sites, a special page for students to use, and more. CoVis Project research was conducted 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 University.
