DANGER - RAVINE AHEAD! IMMEDIATE BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION ESSENTIAL TO AVOID DISASTER! Viaduct Designer is a difficult physics-based, bridge-building puzzle game where you have to think deeply to find the construction skills required to design bridges that are capable of supporting the weight of a small steam locomotive. The year is 1882, and freight (cargo) is almost exclusively delivered by railroad. However, your region, Steamdom, has suddenly come under attack from very devious robots from the future. These naughty robots are destroying local bridges that enable trains to deliver important goods, food and medicine to towns in Steamdom. A hero is desperately needed to help the people of Steamdom by rebuilding the fallen bridges, and enable the little freight trains to once again reach the stations.
Now, with your next delivery train ready to depart, you play the role of the "impromptu" engineer, and must create safe bridges over treacherous ravines for the chugging freight carrier through using a clever combination of horizontal, vertical, and diagonal beams, columns and support structures. As the game name, Viaduct Designer, suggests, your ultimate goal is to build a sturdy viaduct (a bridge composed of several small-span structures used for crossing over a valley or a gorge). The catch here is that your budget is particularly restricted, and you must prudently make the most of your limited building materials.
This highly-challenging online construction activity is a stern test of the engineering credentials of middle and high school students (and older players)! Plenty of trial and error is required as you methodically and logically link up the various support beams to form a solid, load-bearing structure. Some knowledge of or appreciation for civil engineering and structural engineering could well prove of great benefit here. Put simply - if your bridge doesn’t have all of the structural strengths that would make it stand up in real life, it won’t work here either! Beginner players and younger gamers might ask a parent, older sibling, or teacher to help them with the intricacies of bridge building. Who knows - In future years, you really could be designing high-tech bridges of the future – so just remember where your career all started one fun day on Learn4Good!
