After last week's exciting session we started off this afternoon with a conversation on how to make the flow of welding go as smooth as possible. The kids all have a grasp on what welding skills they are working on and they understand how the machines and tools work, so today we focused on working together, while not working on the same thing.
The kids came up with a plan to take short welding turns, be ready with the pieces you want to weld, how to connect them and to also know how you were going to set up the pieces to weld all BEFORE you got to the welding station! We also made a plan to have the rotation of safety gear go more smoothly and ...safely!
At the end of the day, all but 2 kids had accomplished the goal they had set for the afternoon! Wow! We all shared a mistake we made (there were a few careless burns today) and we made notes for where to pick up next week!
