Systems Technology for Schools by Bill de Rooy, Stephen Barclay

Systems Technology for Schools is a journey through the concept of systems, starting with the theory and practice of mechanics and electronics. It examines how the elements of good design can be applied to the process of devising, making and appraising various systems and incorporates examples of systems design in action. With practical construction projects ranging from a basketball slam-dunk ring to an electronic motor controller, Systems Technology for Schools will be of value to Technology and Science students alike.
