Recommended Browsers

To improve the user experience and maintain a consistent format and appearance, the BUILDING BIG Web site uses JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Consequently, we recommend using at least a version 4 or higher browser, such as the newest versions of Netscape Navigator/Communicator or Microsoft Internet Explorer. While the use of an older browser will not prohibit you from accessing any content, some fonts may not display correctly, and the navigational rollovers and other elements will not function consistently.

Challenges

All the challenges should work in all major browsers. However, the Bridge Challenge is best experienced in a web browser that supports JavaScript 1.1, like Netscape Navigator 4 or Internet Explorer 4.

Flash

The BUILDING BIG Labs require the Macromedia Flash 4 Player plug-in. While there are alternative, non-Flash versions of these features on the BUILDING BIG Web site, the Flash versions utilize enhanced graphics and data to provide an improved user experience.

If the labs appear broken, you may not have the correct version of the Flash Player plug-in. We recommend you upgrade to the newest version of the plug-in.

You can download the Flash 4 Player plug-in from the Macromedia Web Site.

Technical assistance with Flash is available at Macromedia's Flash Player Frequently Asked Questions Page.
