PowerUp : IBM educational game
Enter the world of PowerUp, a free, online, multiplayer game that allows students to experience the excitement and the diversity of modern engineering!
Playing the game, students work together in teams to investigate the rich, 3D game environment and learn about the environmental disasters that threaten the game world and its inhabitants.
Players meet Expert Engineer characters and experience the great diversity of the field. Conversations with these experts and engaging interactive activities allow players to explore ways engineers design and build systems to harness renewable energy sources as alternatives to burning fossil fuels.
The Teacher's Guide is designed to be a classroom companion to PowerUp, providing background information for teachers and lesson plans that give students opportunities for more in-depth exploration of science and engineering concepts addressed in gameplay.
Each of these lessons is designed to be flexible and scalable.

The Towers of Hanoi
The object of the game is to move pieces from one post to another post. You can only move the pieces one at a time and you are not allowed to place a piece on top of a smaller piece. You can decide how many pieces you want to play with. Play with three or four until you get the hang of it - playing with seven pieces is awesome!
