The Team Activity Skill area for the 2014 State Agriculture Mechanics CDE is set up and ready to go. All materials were acquired from a mini-grant from the UA Green Fund Committee.

FFA team works to complete the drip irrigation installation activity during the State Agriculture Mechanics CDE. AGTM students set up, facilitate, and serve as event judges.

Nearly 35 UA students and 10 adult volunteers are involved in the conduct of the annual State Agriculture Mechanics CDE to facilitate the 10 groups of 10 contestants.

Hands-on skill activities for the CDE field day require extensive planning, resources, coordination, and preparation. Industry support in the form of loaned welding machines from Lincoln-Electric and Miller Welding keep the event relevant and up to date.



Inviting industry to bring in new technology to expose our pre-service student teachers to gas tungsten arc (GTAW) welding processes.

Pre-service student teachers get a brief “taste” of a welding process that is not taught in the AGTM course.

Award trophies were fabricated by UA AGTM students as another way to “market” our agricultural education program. Individual contestants and teams were recognized for individual classes as well as overall performance.

The VRTEX 360 virtual welder is an example of our attempts to upgrade and improve our teaching technology.

Providing students an opportunity to practice welding-skill development. The virtual system guides students in the psychomotor skill development. Students can practice and sharpen their rod positioning, travel speed, angle and arc length.
