  • Teach teenagers welding.


    My son Andy, just won the Montgomery County Art comptetition with his Miller welder and earned $500. He entered a wrought box with vine and a 300 pound coffee table . (He also got accepted to Rice U last week.) He would like to learn TIG.

    Anyone know of any good classes or apprenticeships or learning postitions for a month in the summer in Houston?

    By the way the kids at Andy's school learn to mig weld in Art class and Andy's friends are busy this weekend welding a robot for their robot competition next week.

    Seems to be a great way to keep kids busy and doing good things.

    Thats great that your son is eager to learn and you are right it will keep kids doing good. I am not in your area but check with the tech college some offer summer mini courses for college credit.

    Hope this helps.

      Check with the high schools, up here in Stevens Point you learn MIG/SMAW and Gas welding in 9th grade, and you continue from there, and in 11th grade you learn TIG. Like PJ said, check the colleges or tech schools.
