Since our last article was posted many great things have been happening in IVVC’s Welding and Fabrication class. One huge thing is that all of the first year students have now completed both MIG and Stick welding now, and the second year students have been learning TIG welding skills.

With all that out of the way, we are now free to explore the next challenge, yeaaa! So we moved onto fabrication training. At first, we started by working on miscellaneous projects & repairs. However, as of lately, the most exciting project for the students is what we are referring to as our “passion projects”. Students have been asked to find a photograph of a vehicle that is of interest to them, then design and build a scale version using scrap metal - nuts, bolts and other odds and ends that can be found around the shop. This exercise has allowed us to explore our artistic sides quite a bit, and has become a huge hit for us all.

I myself have chosen to build a 1932 Ford Model-A coupe HOT ROD. It is apparent that the students have fully embraced the project and WOW! It has turned out to be very exciting. It is quite clear that we all see this challenge as being very near and dear to our hearts.

As we approach the end of a successful year together, everything looks to be smooth sailing from here on out.

We have included a few photos to show everyone just how cool this challenge has become!
