To fully engage in the program, students will need a reliable internet connection and a computer or tablet. At a minimum, the connected device should include a webcam, speakers, and microphone and be able to support live video and audio conferencing. In addition, students will at times need to record and upload video and audio files, download content, and access information online from a variety of sources. We will use an assortment of online applications throughout the program and access to these will be provided by The Experimentory. Teachers will communicate any additional specific technical requirements for courses directly to students in advance of the start of the program.
Our goal is to keep PERISCOPE simple, safe, and accessible the summer. Students should have their necessary accounts set up and be ready to access the following software prior to the first day of the program. See the instructions above and in the email that was sent to you with specific details about getting logged into your accounts.
Some courses may also use additional software specific to that class. Any software required for specific courses will be communicated directly to the students enrolled in those courses.
