I teach in a very urban area and my kids are having a hard time deciding what to build. I can only think of stuff that would be helpful on a farm. Any ideas?? also could you attach project plans?
No plans, but we make garden flag holders and Shephard's Hooks for hanging baskets.
I have a campfire grill that I'm trying out this year. It's a pretty simple project. Depending on students, you could spend a couple of weeks working on it. I would imagine kids at Woods Cross still go camping? Maybe?
Small BBQs are very popular. Lot's of different styles to choose from. Kid's like to take them home or sell for profit. They can be built cheaply from 30 gal barrels or from scratch using plate. Use expanded metal for grates. Wheels from old lawnmowers are free.
Find plans/ideas on the web such as:
I suggest to my students to look at Home Depot and the county fairs for ideas. Once you have some ideas you make a unique plan that fits your program.
A few photos are attached.
This is something I do with the students. Lot of fun and changes things up. You can also go to the Facebook page that I created to see the different projects made by students. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Miami-Valley-CTC-Welding/199005773498804
