We need help with a 5th grade school project. My son has a worksheet that asks what he would like to do as a career. He chose Roller Coaster Designer. The next step, interview someone with that job. Is there anyone here who can answer a few questions? Here they are:
1. Why did yu become a coaster designer?
2. Where did you go to college?
3. Were you in an honors program?
4. How many coasters have you designed?
5. How high is a dangerous drop to you?
6. How long have you been interested in this?
7. What advice would you give a person who wants to be a coaster designer?
8. What is your favorite coaster?

Thanks so much for your help.

I see that it allows you to pose questions where you can pick "school project" as the subject.

Lots of coaster enthusiasts know and love their work!

I wish I could go back and tell my 10 year old self that I would love to be a roller coaster designer when I grow up!!


You should head to a book store and check out some books regarding coaster design. They probly have a ton of pictures your kid might enjoy and maybe it might spark something in him to pursue it one day!
