  1. 1. Installing Science Simulations 3 Windows Computers – basic installation Place the CD-ROM in the relevant drive of your computer. Double-click on the Setup icon and follow the on-screen instructions. For a standard installation click Next on each screen. This will add Science Simulations 3 to your programs menu in the location, Start>Programs>Science Simulations>Science Simulations 3 The installed version will still require the CD-ROM to be in the drive during use. Apple Mac Computers – basic installation Place the CD-ROM in the relevant drive of your computer. Double-click on the Install Science Simulations 3 icon and follow the on-screen instructions. For a standard installation click Next on each screen. QuickStart Standard installation will create a shortcut to Science Simulations 3 BBC Science Simulations 3 enables pupils to engage in a series of on your desktop. virtual scientific experiments.
