Synopsis

How to Design the World's Best: Roller Coaster In 10 Simple Steps by Paul Mason

Imagine someone gave you a sackful of money and told you to build a roller coaster. You'd definitely want it to be the best roller coaster in the world. But how do you go about designing THAT? Armed with your own imagination and some smart research, find out how you can transform a fantasy design into an actual dream product. You'll apply real-world design considerations to your ideas, refining your design to make it workable and achievable as it takes shape.

Reviews

This is a brilliant book for gaining an understanding of design and technology processes through a step-by-step guide to the building of a giant roller coaster. Each problem as designer faces is taken in turn with Work it Out activities throughout to take the reader ino the heart of the design. This is just one of the series of books by Wayland and I would recommend them highly to Secondary schools wanting to augment the D&T section of their libraries or creat appealing D&T projects. * The School Librarian * Excellent ... shows how the combination of imaginative ideas and practical research can transform a fantasy design into an actual dream product * Parents In Touch *

About the Author

Armed with a MacBook Air and the miracle of the Internet, Paul lives and writes at a secret location somewhere on the west coast of Europe. You can be pretty sure that keeping his feet warm under the writing table is his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.As well as being a writer, Paul is a wanderer. He has lived in various countries - always in the high mountains, or somewhere near a good surfing beach. Wherever I am, though, and whatever else I'm doing, he says, I follow Ray Bradbury's advice: 'Write, every single day.' Paul writes about many subjects, but his books are mostly to do with sports, the world's different peoples, places, and animals, or the weird and wonderful.
