Teacher Review For Portal 2 Puzzle Maker

Ridiculous fun. Problem solving skills get really tested in building AND playing what has been built!

How I Use It
I used this in a tech class about evaluating educational software. I asked students if it was educational. This was, by far, their favorite. It was everyone's favorite. It's a fun way to teach problem solving- from creation to actual play. Students wanted to keep playing well after class was over.
My Take
It's expensive to get into, but the expense clearly goes to having a product that is very refined. It's very well designed, very easy to work with, and just plain fun.
