Woodworking

 

Unique to MESA, our woodworking class offers students the experience of creating useful and decorative items with wood. Teachers emphasize proper safety measures and equipment at the beginning of all lessons to ensure a safe environment. Our workshop is thoroughly equipped with child-sized tools, workbenches and safety equipment. Our curriculum includes: wood as a natural resource, conservation, reforestation, tools, hardware, measurement and safety. Students are taught proper usage of the 7 basic hand tools and the utility of simple machines. We create everything from birdhouses and rock sifters to wooden robots, sailboats and toys.
