      Welcome to the Computer Supported Collaborative Science website. CSCS is an effort by Cal State Northridge to support science teachers in the San Fernando Valley. We conduct workshops for science teachers on Saturdays and a summer CSCS Institute. Our current focus is on the use of cloud-computing tools like Google Docs to support data sharing and collaboration in science classrooms.
