Donna High School Shares World of Welding

Donna High School TRPN Welding pathway students participated in Career Day at Salazar Elementary on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2023. The students shared their passion for pursuing a welding career and provided the elementary students with hands-on experiences. The students had an opportunity to try on welding gloves, goggles, and a helmet and feel the weight of the metal! Junior-level students Leone Garcia, Bryan Hernandez, and Juan Gomez did a wonderful job showcasing some of their experiences in welding and encouraged the students to start planning for their future careers.

Taking the presentation a step further, the students used the welding T-joint activity with the graham crackers and frosting and a welding word search puzzle which the TRPN conveners, RGV LEAD, provided. The students were excited to use them as part of their presentation. They were both a hit with the elementary students!
