Welding and woods students show different projects at Fort Hays
From fire pits to equipment, several students from woods and welding will be showing different projects at the mid-Kansas technical show on April 27 and 28 at Fort Hays.
“Students around the western Kansas area are bringing projects in to show them off,” instructor Nathan Howard said.
The object of the show is to present what students from this part of the state are capable of doing. While the event is not mandatory, many students chose to enter and some even to bring multiple projects.
“Projects are ranging from a fire pit to equipment. One student has made his own hydraulic press,” Howard said.
Those attending include seniors Alanna Hansen, Thomas Harman, and Tanner Hunsicker, juniors Michael Schmidt and Keaton Augustine, and sophomores Matthew Fross, the creator of the hydraulic press, Alan Lopez and Adam Stahl. More students from woods will attend as well.
Being able to show people their ability to create thing may be the greatest outcome.
“It kind of advertises the students abilities to colleges and to people who come see it,” Howard said.
