Part of Lesson Plan: Aluminum Spinning Top
Activity Overview / Details
Once the working drawing has been completed and approved, students will put on eye protection and move into the lab. The material stock could have already been cut when covering a unit on power saws. Turning operations will now take place. I make sure that students who are waiting for a lathe are safely watching the current machine operator. This saves quite a bit of time and also allows the observer to learn about the operation, especially if a mistake is made, so as not to be repeated.
