Industrial Arts is an educational program which features fabrication of objects in wood or metal using a variety of hand, power, or machine tools. A visit to Mr. Ryan Elder's classes on Wednesday at WHS found many interesting and practical projects in progress. No student encouragement is needed - when the bell rings the students get down to business. A couple of classes were building tool caddies, others worked on numerous woodwork items including tables, outdoor furniture and more. Welding is part of the curriculum as is Carpentry and Construction.
Many skills being learned and applied. In between tasks, students swept and kept the work areas clean and assisted other classmates with their projects as needed.
