The DVD Puzzletek is based on puzzles, games we all know and use. Aimed at people over 12 years old who through puzzles will be able to know the world of technology and energy. In fact, as the puzzles are done, they will receive several explanations.

Play with the puzzles

Players will have at their disposal more than 50 puzzles and not of any type: round, square, with gaps, exchange... each of the young and not so young will have a unique opportunity to work their skill, and as you complete the puzzles will increase their level of difficulty. One of the main features of the puzzles is that when moving the pieces change their dimensions, which allows the player more possibilities.

Explanations about technology

The starting point is to complete the puzzles on the computer screen, but in addition, this product also provides information. The themes of Puzzletek are related to technology and within it the theme of energy is mainly worked: types of energy, energy concepts from the physical point of view, systems of obtaining electrical energy from the industrial and environmental point of view, etc. In addition to this theme, it addresses the history of flight, from pioneers to the last spacecraft of today, diving, etc. At the end of each puzzle a brief information about the theme is offered through videos and 3D images, and you can read and print the technological, geographical, historical explanations, etc. that they are given. The explanations give them two voices (one female and one male) and, once heard, if you want to get more information, you can perform a search for information through a conceptual map. Whoever wants to continue playing can also continue playing, since it is in the hands of the user what he wants to do on the DVD.
