Students will fabricate a base, pedestal and 6 sided dice and join them together by fitting up and welding components in a fixed positio,n starting from the base working up, utilizing multiple or single welding processes in 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, 2F, 3F, 4F welding positions.
Students will be preparing for American Welding Society certification through this project.
This project has four scaffolding lessons as they culminate to create a final product for Welding and Material Joining. This project is designed to evaluate end of course abilities and knowledge while challenging students with advanced skills and critical thinking. Students should possess the basic skills and experience required to make an attempt on successfully completing this project.
This project addresses real world problems a welder will have to overcome by challenging the student to successfully weld in “all positions." You cannot flip an aircraft carrier upside down to weld comfortably. A welder that can weld in all positions using multiple welding processes and can communicate effectively using industry terms can obtain gainful employment over competing welders.
Lesson #1 - Students will be reinforcing, prints/drawings interpretation, materials identification, and tape measure.
Lesson #2 - Students will be reinforcing, prints/drawings interpretation, layout skills, hand tools, power tools, advanced manufacturing equipment and joint preparation.
Lesson #3 - Students will be reinforcing, prints/drawings interpretation, welding symbols, fabrication techniques, fasteners familiarization and multiple welding processes.
Lesson #4 - Students will be reinforcing, finishing tools and inspection tools. Students will self-critique based off of a scoring guide (rubric), and then display their final project for collaborative peer critiquing.
