Creative Partnerships Project – Rollercoaster Design Co.

Author: Tim Taylor l Suitable for: Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3+, Planning

This report outlines an moe project on ‘roller coasters’ led by David Allen (from Midland’s Actors Theatre). David has undertaken the project at both KS2 and KS3, and the plan can be adapted for either level. (At KS3, the project was designed to support the teaching of maths.) In the project, students form a Roller Coaster design company, commissioned by a theme park to invent a new ride.

The report here details the step-by-step plans and resources developed by David, in collaboration with teachers from Turves Green Boys’ Technology College, and West Heath Primary School.
