IF only a few try a tripod and taping the slides to the window.

Otherwise a simple cardboard box with a suitable 35mm hole cut out with a shelf for the slides to sit on, a desk lamp can be enough light but watch the colour.

I tend to dig out the 35mm projector and photograph the picture projected onto my screen, get quite good results that way.

People sell devices that fit flatbed-scanners for negatives, Google that.
It's a device quite simple in which you have a (?45 degree) mirror reflecting light back through the film.
Otherwise there are devices specifically designed for slides.
If you've got a scanner let me know.
