This semester course will concentrate on oxyacetylene welding and cutting exercises, arc welding, and MIG welding lab exercises. Students will gain training on the Realityworks Virtual Welding Simulator for Arc (Stick) Welding and Gas Metallic Arc Welding (MIG) in the classroom to analyze strengths and weaknesses in the lab portion of the course

The semester exam consists of students choosing seven welds from the Arc Welding list (SMAW), two welds from the MIG Welding list (GMAW), and five welds from the Oxyacetylene Welding list. The welds are completed during a 83 minute exam period.

Agriscience classes cover a section on simple machines in agriculture in the unit Physical Science in Agriscience. Labs are conducted concerning the lever, pulleys, wheel and axle, inclined plane, screw, and wedge. Students measure effort forces needed to complete work and calculate mechanical advantage of each simple machine.
