Sparks fly in ag structures class

By Susan Lockhart
Special Projects Coordinator

THERMOPOLIS — The sparks were flying earlier this week in Britton Van Heule’s ag projects class at Hot Springs County High School in Thermopolis.
Students can take the class more than once, so first time students were completing a variety of welding techniques for Van Heule’s approval before moving on to projects.
“Students work on MIG, gas and arc welding,” explained Van Heule. “Students must complete basic skills in all positions — vertical, horizontal, flat — for all types of welding. Students work at mastering the skills. They must master the weld to high standards before they can move on.
“It is self paced, and they move at their own pace. Some finish fast, others it takes more time.
“Once they have the skills completed they move to two small projects, a pair of pliers and a coffee can converted to feed scoop. When they have passed this, they move to individual projects, or they take on projects from the community.”
One of the community projects some of the students are working on is a large sphere made out of old horseshoes. The old shoes have to have all the nails removed from them and get a little cleaning before the students begin welding the structure.
Van Heule said the student are “allowed to design and build anything they can afford.”
