What's more fun than a theme park? Now you can build one of your very own, using the popular game of Minecraft.
Using core STEM principles, this colorful book takes you step by step through the process of designing and constructing your own fabulous mega Minecraft theme park--calculating the space required for each ride, understanding the different properties of the available materials, and learning how gravity and friction affect the speed of your roller coaster. The end results will be fantastic, including multiple attractions such as a Ferris wheel and water slide, ticket booths, paving, and a fence around the perimeter.
