Intel re-offered an attractive product. This time for education, to sharpen your brain with Intel AppUp®. Developed by Intel with content from the Khan Academy, this compelling educational application features a full set of curriculum aligned mathematics and science videos. Mathematics subjects include pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, probability, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, differential equations and linear algebra. Science subjects include physics, chemistry and biology. Designed for use by students, teachers, coaches and adult learners, each video is a distinct piece of learning, approximately 10 minutes long, and especially purposed for viewing on a computer.

Sharpening your skills in thinking with Bridge Constructuor. In this game, you really need to build bridges that have been damaged by an earthquake on the island nation of Camatuga. Passages over canyons, rivers, mountain ravines, and small sea bays have to be rebuilt after an earthquake. In 30 missions, use wood, steel, concrete, and steel cables to construct bridges able to sustain the weight of cars and even trucks. Cash points for your bridge and move on to the next construction site. Clear the way to your personal highscore! Every mission presents a different challenge! Gaps of various distances and depths have to be bridged using diverse materials like wood, steel, or concrete. The more expensive construction materials are more stable but every project's determined budget might limit your use of them. That's where your imagination and creativity come into play! The less money you have to spend on a bridge, the more points you earn for it. Since your construction skills continuously improve during the game, it will be fun to come back to earlier constructions and optimize them to cash more points. You will be astonished at the number of possible solutions that you wouldn't have thought of before! Features: - 30 construction missions with varying degrees of difficulty - 5 types of landscapes: canyon, beach, mountains, hills, and city - 4 materials with different physical characteristics: wood, steel, concrete, and steel cable - 2 degrees of difficulty for each level: weight endurance separately tested for cars and trucks - Colour-based stress indication for each construction element
