Summary

In a Welding/ Manufacturing Class

  1. Students will enter the class and review safety protocol with welding tools.
  2. Students will be given their objective, “Virtually build a frame for a four-wheeled vehicle, which can support an electric engine. Remember weight distribution and strength of welds when creating your frame.”
  3. Students will turn on their VR headsets, and using the Welding program, the students will have 75 minutes to design and create their frame.
  4. Teacher will facilitate the learning and check in 1:1 with each student about their project.

 

What You'll Need

The Instructions

Introduction and Safety

Process and Procedures

Students will enter the Makerspace and review safety protocol and procedures for us of the VR Googles. Students will also review Welding safety protocol, as the final step to the project will be to physically weld a frame.
