Shop Safety Poster

October 24th

Grade 10:

Hi! Use the computers to research and complete a “shop safety poster” detailing one shop safety rule that we have covered so far in QUIA material.

Use whatever computer software package you are comfortable with.

Include images and as much information as necessary. You can print out and hand in OR email these to me when complete – mrdarling@mrdarling.com .

If you finish that try this “estimating game”, it helps develop your ability to estimate and “eyeball” dimensions;

If you have completed this you can work on unfinished work from last week or continue research for “functional CNC” or your personal independent project that will be completed before the christmas break.

Grade 10

Choose a career in the manufacturing field, research it online and gather the following information to be entered on Quia here: http://www.quia.com/quiz/5458365.html

You must include the following information in your finished product:
Job description
Educational Requirements (list at least two places that you could receive the education required for this job)

Where you would work if you had this job (names of companies)
Opportunities for advancement (what else is there that people who do this job can do?)
Picture(s) of somebody doing this job or other relevant graphics

Possible Careers:

Welder
Underwater welder

Grade 12

Take time today to complete research on post-secondary opportunities in the manufacturing industry (i.e. welding, machining). Try to find information on program name, location, length and cost. Find out what sort of career opportunities exist in the field that your have selected.

Complete a brief write-up with the above information as well as your perspective on the chosen pathway and email it to me at mrdarling@mrdarling.com

Have a good day and see you on Tuesday.

Grade 10:

Hi! Use the computers to research and complete a “shop safety poster” detailing one shop safety rule.

Use whatever computer software package you are comfortable with.

Include images and as much information as necessary. You can print out and hand in OR email these to me when complete – mrdarling@mrdarling.com .

If you have completed this try to find a lathe instructional video on youtube, especially one that deals with feed rates, speeds and RPM.

See you tomorrow!

Grade 12:

Research and respond to the following statement:

“It should be illegal to throw an aluminum can in the garbage”

Provide reasons why this statement is true (or false, but it’s totally true).

A couple paragraphs would be cool.

See you tomorrow.

Grade 11:

A bit of reading for you today.

Precision Measuring: http://www.jjjtrain.com/vms/measure_fundmentals/measure_fund_00.html

Lathe/Turning: http://www.mfg.mtu.edu/marc/primers/turning/turn.html

Drilling: http://www.mfg.mtu.edu/marc/primers/drilling/nomen.html

Milling: http://www.mfg.mtu.edu/marc/primers/milling/index.html

After you have finished this reading, you can create a safety poster for a machining tool (i.e. lathe, mill, drill press)

Use online research to select a general safety rule and then assemble using images to create a poster.

When you complete this you can email it to me mrdarling@mrdarling.com or print it out and hand it in.

Grade 10:

The teacher has your QUIA password if you do not know what it is.

Read handout as well as information posted here and then complete the QUIA quiz located here: http://www.quia.com/quiz/5513037.html

If you have any safety quizzes not completed, take the time today to complete them.

We will be making metal stools with CNC routed tops of MDF wood. You will need to find a logo or design to place on the top of your stool – take some time today to find a logo to use with your project. Sports logos and motorsport logos have been popular in the past. Save what you find to your profile. Try to get a large image size. Logos work better than pictures – look for things with clean lines and solid colours.

Grade 11:

Read handout as well as information posted here and then complete the QUIA quiz located here: http://www.quia.com/quiz/5513037.html

If you have completed this and all other Quia quizzes, you can do some online research for upcoming project work including:

Functional CNC – We will do some CNC work using Vcarve, I would like us to talk about using CNC to create functional objects. Here are some examples.  (for example, toys, furniture, coasters, art – we will be using MDF to create these, but they might have some metal accents)

Grade 12:

Read handout as well as information posted here and then complete the QUIA quiz located here: http://www.quia.com/quiz/5513037.html

After that there are a few things I would like you to consider:

Tool storage: Please do some online research to help finalize our new tool rack layout. If you find any interesting concepts, save or print them to share with me on Monday.

Grade 11

An upcoming project we will complete is designing and building a metal chair.

After you have completed the Quia work take some time to research some of the following:

Optimum chair dimensions (height/seat size/back/etc)

Existing metal/welded chair designs

We will be completing a formal design process for this project so now is the time to gather ideas and begin to think about what sort of metal chair you could build (we can include fabric elements if you are interested in doing so).

There will be material constraints that we work in – essentially the bulk of the material you use will be 1/2″ and 1/4″ round stock.

Save any work/images you find for future reference.

Grade 12

Hi Grade 12′s – take some time today (after you have completed the safety quizzes) to begin some research and design work for one of the four independent projects that you will need to complete this year.

Things to consider:

Design (what am I going to build)

Materials and resources required

Processes required

Of course we will be completing the “shop renewal” projects first before we start on any of the independent projects.

Save your work and I will present you with some more formal framework at a later date.

Some of you had mentioned an interest in TIG Welding – here is a good starting point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLUXaLT6hIo

 

Grade 10

New and Emerging Technologies

Describe how society is being affected today by various new and emerging technologies (e.g., electronic messaging, Global Positioning System [GPS], smart phones, wireless access, hybrid vehicles, nanotechnology, biotechnology, alternative energy such as solar or wind power, mapping systems such as google maps)

Choose one of the terms above, or select your own (check here for more ideas) and enter the following information into Quia under the “New and Emerging Technology” more: http://www.computerworld.com/category/emerging-technology

Description of the technology (what is it and what does it do)

Short history or timeline of the technology

Use of the technology (who uses it for what)

Innovators – who is in the lead at developing this technology

Impacts – how is this technology affecting the world around us

Future – What is seen as the future of this technology – where is it going?

These assignments are meant to have you do some research into technology and technological change. Although they may not see directly related to the hands-on part of our course, they are curriculum requirements that we need to cover – these assignments will be graded and count as part of your final mark.
