Do you mean that clicking on something in a slide should cause an
expression to be evaluated in DrScheme REPL, using a DrScheme instance
that is started within the slide show?

If so, you could probably use the Framework's `test:' functions to
simulate a user typing something into the REPL. See `test:keystroke',
for example.

If you want to find a DrScheme that lives outside the slide show,
though, I don't have a good idea. From outside DrScheme, there's not
much you can do besides asking DrScheme to open a file.
