Wow! We have to admit, we were a bit overwhelmed with how many people came to the MATC Community Welding event we had in November. We expected maybe 10 to 20 people and had probably 40! In fact, it was too many, and made it difficult to fit everyone into our small welding area (even in shifts.)
So obviously the only solution is to do it again. Only bigger this time!
So once again we’re teaming up with our friends at MATC for a welding event that is open to the community. Anyone 14 years of age or older is welcome. Here’s the details you need to know:
We’ll have a number of MATC welding instructors on-hand so everyone will get a chance to do some welding. The welding robot lab will also be available for tours (but we won’t be using it this time.)
Please wear proper clothing! Long pants and sleeves with cotton materials, no nylon or any synthetic materials, no open toed shoes. If you have a pair of safety glasses please bring them! Wear clothes that you won’t mind burning a hole in. Welding can get messy!
It’s happening between 6pm and 8pm on Monday, December 17th, 2018 at the MATC West Campus at 1309 S. 70th Street in West Allis, Wisconsin.
This is a free event, and our friends at MATC are donating their time, and if you like what you see, they can tell you more about their continuing education welding classes at MATC. How awesome is that!?
