Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.

- a used toaster (low-end brand is preferred*), can be picked up from a thrift store like Value Village, Salvation Army, etc. - a screwdriver kit (which has at least a flat head and philips head) - https://a.co/d/hwwUmJd - pliers - https://amzn.to/3PkK1do - measuring tape - https://a.co/d/g0USCrb - safety glasses - https://a.co/d/8fNYQPV * You can message me prior to the start of class to confirm if a particular toaster and materials are okay to use. If you have trouble finding a toaster or other tools, please let me know.
4 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will use common hardware tools (a screwdriver, pliers, measuring tape). They will be taught the purpose of each tool and how it is to be used safely. While it is not required, having a parent nearby would be helpful, in case they get stuck on a step - especially if the student has not seen or used these tools before.
