About STR

In 1997 our Founder and CEO Bill Hoffman started School & Science Technology Resources.
It wasn't too long before he discovered the Scope On A Rope™, the perfect marriage between a video camera and a microscope developed for science education at Louisiana State University. A former science teacher himself, Mr. Hoffman saw how incredibly useful these new devices would be in the science classroom. Mark Hoffman, Bill's son, joined his father followed by siblings TT Robson, Elise Alden, and Paul Hoffman and the company became family owned and operated. Since then, we have developed custom education kits with exclusive accessories and teacher resources insuring that students and teachers get the most out of these products. We are dedicated to teachers and education, always striving to provide tools that will enhance the teaching and learning experience.

More recently, STR has expended to provide these same camera microscope tools to skin and hair care, and for use in industry. Our knowledge of customer needs in these markets have prompted our developement of specialized versions of camera microscope to meet specific skin and hair care needs.

Today there are over 6,000 teachers and thousands of other professionals using our products and we will continue providing these valuable tools to promote excitement and love of learning in students, and to assist skin and hair care professionals.
