Super structures

Each book in this series provides all the necessary ingredients to start children designing and making their own exciting technology projects, based on simple "recipes" that use readily available, low-cost materials. The projects give hands-on experience of technology in everyday life and are constructed in a way that makes finding out about technology fun.

"Super Structures" shows how to make and test a range of strong shapes, from triangles and trusses to bridges and domes. There are ideas for making collapsible structures, protective packaging and pop-ups.
