My name is Evan Pulsipher. I am a senior here at Cherokee High School, and a future UNG Nighthawk. As of right now, my plan is to work my way through college as a welder, and earn a degree in engineering. The two will go hand in hand in finding a well-paying, stable job. My choice for the senior project is welding, which I have learned an extraordinary amount about.
In my research paper, I went over the different safety hazards welding produces. Through my research, not only did I learn the different hazards, I also learned what steps to take in order to negate them. For example, one of the most well-known hazards of welding is the large amount of Ultra Violet light it produces. The counter measure for this would be the welding hood, which has darkened glass to look through, basically acting as stronger sunglasses.
My product is a picture frame. I chose to weld the frame out of aluminum, purely because welding aluminum is very difficult, and I wanted to see if I could. I used every safety precaution at my disposal, exactly as described in my research paper. Before attempting to create my product, I had only TIG welded stainless steel, which in my opinion, is much easier. With the motor skills and knowledge I have obtained, I hope to eventually be certified in the field.
At the beginning of the year, I admit, I was slightly skeptical about whether or not I actually wanted to become a welder. Roughly 160 hours of shop time later, I can happily say that I hope to have a career in the field. Welding, while being very difficult, is very rewarding, and will hopefully prove to be a fruitful career.
The senior project helped me improve on skills that I will hopefully use for the rest of my life. Without it, I may have never pushed myself to learn how to weld aluminum, as it is out of my comfort zone. Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, and I look forward to presenting for you.
