Gilmer High School agricultural science welding class got to experience the use of a virtual welder. The welder is a simulator that provides and measures the students’ progress in the welding process.

It grades the students on work angle, speed, position and distance from the stock. The virtual welder is sponsored by Tulsa Welding School and Lincoln Electric.

While students are perfecting their skills, the machine grades the students and enters the students in a nationwide contest with students from across the Nation.

Tulsa representatives explained the importance and need for skilled workers in the work force today.
