A Study of the Knowledge and Skills Required of Draftsmen in Descriptive Geometry, and What is Offered in Texas Junior Colleges

A Study of the Knowledge and Skills Required of Draftsmen in Descriptive Geometry, and What is Offered in Texas Junior Colleges

Date: May 1972
Creator: Ewing, George E.
Description: This study was conducted to ascertain whether or not the opportunities for developing competencies in descriptive geometry needed by draftsmen in the Dallas -Fort Worth area are being provided in Texas junior colleges. Findings concerning the knowledge, skills, and equipment associated with descriptive geometry as it is presented in Texas junior colleges were compared with competencies in descriptive geometry that representatives of industry believe are important for successful draftsmen in companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The purpose of the study is to compile information which will be of use to school officials and teachers in developing courses of study that will enable students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed for success in industry.

A Comparative Study of Three Epoxy Resins in the Industrial Arts Laboratory

A Comparative Study of Three Epoxy Resins in the Industrial Arts Laboratory

Date: May 1974
Creator: Yeatts, Fred Henry
Description: This study was made to determine the advantages of the use of epoxy resins in the industrial arts laboratory. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive. Data was gathered from texts, periodicals, and unpublished data. Tests were conducted using epoxy samples acquired from three epoxy manufacturers on three different woods and joints. The study discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive and the material and equipment necessary for the use of epoxy resins. Strength tests were performed on the joints adhered with epoxy and on joints adhered with white glue. A hand operated high tensile strength machine was used to conduct the tests. Epoxy Resins were found, in most cases, to give a more durable bond than white glue. Further studies should be made using epoxy resins as adhesives for metal, glass, plastic, and other materials used in the industrial arts laboratory.

A Study of the Knowledge and Skills of Mobile Home Metalworkers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

A Study of the Knowledge and Skills of Mobile Home Metalworkers in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area

Date: May 1974
Creator: Cosper, Larry T.
Description: The purpose of this study was to determine the required knowledge and skills of mobile home metalworkers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as compared to the Industrial Arts metalworking curriculum presented in Texas Education Agency, Bulletin 615. Items of significance in Chapter IV appear in findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The "use of basic hand tools" and "safety concepts" were consistently emphasized and required by manufacturing firms. It was found that educational requirements were quite often "some high school" or less. It was found that Industrial Arts metalworking curriculum was closely related to required knowledge and skills of mobile home metalworkers. It was recommended that Industrial Arts course work be extended into lower levels of education.

The Impact of Expanding Technical Knowledge on the Beginning Industrial Arts Teacher

The Impact of Expanding Technical Knowledge on the Beginning Industrial Arts Teacher

Date: August 1974
Creator: McCulley, Charles R.
Description: This study measures technical preparation and job demands among North Texas State University industrial arts graduates teaching in high schools. In addition to data from professional literature and the NTSU Bulletin, questionnaire mailings reveal that most graduates consider themselves qualified although recommending more semester hours of industrial arts for certification. They also affirm the practical value to the teacher of experience in industry. The study recommends narrowing the number of areas in industrial arts preparation and providing a more specialized teacher-training program with greater uniformity of semester hours.

Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Noise in School Power Laboratories: Its Effects and Control

Date: August 1976
Creator: Schwab, David L.
Description: This study was made to find the effects of noise on the human body, to measure sound levels that exist in school power laboratories, and to design and evaluate the effectiveness of two noise control devices. An accurately calibrated testing device was used to measure sound levels in an attempt to determine if excessive noise exists in school power laboratories and to find the extent to which such noise can be reduced by shielding or enclosing the engine test area. It was found that noise has undesirable physical and psychological effects on the human organism. Sixty-two and one-half per cent of the engines tested registered sound levels above 90 dBA; even so, simple, inexpensive noise control devices do control the noise levels generated in the school power laboratories.

The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

The Role of Industrial Arts in Career Education

Date: December 1977
Creator: Pinnell, Charles C.
Description: This study seeks to provide a descriptive analysis of the role of industrial arts in career education. The criteria used as a basis for comparison of industrial arts and career education are (1) clarification of terminology, (2) historical trends in the development of both programs, (3) basic program philosophies, (4) curriculum content, (5) objectives and goals sought by each curriculum, and (6) legislation affecting industrial arts and career education. Career education is more extensive than industrial arts. Industrial arts cannot assume full responsibility for a comprehensive program of career education; however, industrial arts can be involved in activities which will help the student select a meaningful occupation related to industry.
