Summary - Basic electricity skills are essential to any ag mechanics program. To aid the students in developing their wiring skills, a class set of circuit boards is very helpful. Those teachers teaching electricity for the first time may not have these devices and can take the opportunity to make the construction of circuit boards a class project.
This lesson will take the students through the process of constructing a circuit board and to learn how the placement of enclosures and devices (ie. switches, outlets) relate to residential construction and wiring. Students will learn basic code requirements as well.
Included in this lesson will be diagrams and step-by-step instructions on how to put the circuit boards together.
