All STEMscopes video and interactive components are encoded in HTML5. A web-capable device (tablets, phones, computers) require no additional software, apps, or updates to be able to fully use STEMscopes. Internet connection is required to use the program; only PDF, Excel, and PowerPoint resources are downloadable for online use. Texas teachers using the new Google Doc editable feature on iPads will need the Google Drive and Google Doc apps to work with/edit those items on the iPad. Teachers also have the option to assign our editable Google documents to students via the Google Classroom app.
