Portal for PCs and Macs Free for a Limited Time! Michael Lim September 18, 2011 Just a few months after releasing Team Fortress 2 for free to PC and Mac users, Valve is back at it again, this time giving free dibs on highly acclaimed puzzler, Portal. As part of Valve’s “Learn with Portals” initiative, the giveaway is meant to help students unleash creativity as Portal includes all the tools Valve used to create the various test chambers. Intrigue. Engage. Inspire. When we heard the buzz surrounding the new role video games are playing in education, we had to throw our hat in the ring. Today, innovative educators are finding ways to incorporate Portal™ and Portal 2 into their classrooms—helping teach physics and critical-thinking skills. It’s eye-opening to see how video games can be used in amazing and unexpected ways to help educate our next generation. One of the biggest challenges in teaching science, technology, engineering, and math is capturing the students’ imaginations long enough for them to see all of the possibilities that lie ahead. Using interactive tools like the Portal series to draw them in makes physics, math, logic, spatial reasoning, probability, and problem-solving interesting, cool, and fun which gets us one step closer to our goal—engaged, thoughtful kids! The requirements are quite tame, compared to current PC games: 1.7GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, DirectX 9 compliant video card. You need to install the Steam client and then download and install the game from this link. Hurry! Offer ends September 20th. Source: Learn with Portals Site Share This With The World!
