Introduction to Ag Power and Technology
120.00
This is a one-credit course to develop knowledge and skill in the fundamentals of agricultural mechanics and power equipment. Physical science and mathematics principles will be integrated throughout the course. Major areas of content include the meaning and importance of agricultural mechanics and power; personal and employability safety; identifying, using, and maintaining common hand and power tools; planning and organizing facilities and shops; using measuring devices; selecting and using wood and metal materials; using fasteners and hardware; preparing and using simple project plans; metal fabrication; and machinery and engines. FFA and supervised experience will also be included as appropriate.
