This program starts in our Level 1 series where kids are introduced to hand tools, metal working tools, wood shop, electronics, and AutoCAD where they develop a feel for the tools they are using and manipulating. Level 2 increases the technical difficulty by introducing powered hand tools, welding, small machinery, engine mechanics, circuitry, and more advanced AutoCAD modeling to the curriculum. To see all of the 5 levels of classes to bring young adults to the point where they will understand the basics of automotive, power tools, modeling, as well as machinery operation.
The goal of this program is to build on the previous knowledge of how to use basic hand tools, and help develop the “feel” needed to successfully work with different materials and mechanical systems. The understanding of the hand and power tools will provide a solid foundation for the level 3 and 4 programs, where increasingly more powerful tools will be introduced along with more complicated projects.
