Did you know that all gadgets and games have a life cycle? That's what we call the stages from  their design, manufacture, and sale to their use, maintenance, and disposal. This book explains what happens during these stages, such as prototyping, the sourcing of components, the production process, the decisions made by designers and engineers, and recycling.

About the Author:

Chris Oxlade is an experienced author of non-fiction books for children. He has written more than 200 titles on science, technology, sports and hobbies, from encyclopedia articles to fun activity books.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-With a focus on STEM, these volumes survey their subject areas in dry but carefully structured ways, following common industrial products from initial designs to eventual disposals. For example, Clothes explains how garments develop from designs to become goods that are ultimately recycled, reused, or thrown away. Each generalized stage and concept is explained, summed up, recapped, and supplemented with diagrams, color photos, statistics, case studies, and historical notes-plus, both research topics and resource lists in the back matter. Approached cold, the staid prose and visuals are unlikely to kindle readers' interest, but where an enthusiasm for clothes, gadgets, architecture, and cars already exists, there is plenty here to broaden and deepen it. α(c) Copyright 2011.
