Synopsis

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

Paul's books cover a wide range of subjects, from whether the Romans ate crisps to how to build the world's best skatepark, but he writes mostly about sport. Whether you are interested in swimming or cycling, snowboarding, surfing or another sport, Paul has probably written something that will inspire you to get out and give it a try. Paul writes in a shack by the beach, which he shares with his one-eyed surf dog, Daisy.
