Default Hello from GA

Hello all,

Name is John, and I am a HS Spanish teacher. I race karts as a hobby, mostly arrive and drive endurance races, with a little 206 mixed in.

Been lurking here for a couple years but decided it was time to post as I will be teaching a class next January on how to design and build a go kart. The class will be three weeks long, probably have 15-20 high school students with little to no fabrication skills and absolutely zero engineering experience.

The teachers will be me, a chemistry teacher, and a physics teacher (whom I've never met). I am the only one with welding experience, and I am VERY novice. Basically I can get the machine running, but I have never welded anything structural.

I know I will have lots of questions, and I hope I can find the answers here. I am not new to online forums, so I will do my best to get the basics with the search function. Otherwise, I hope you guys will be willing to help!

We try to help when we can. And much learning comes with it lol. Quite a few of the people here are basically karting encyclopedias and useful when stuck and have questions.

Welcome! Would it be possible to get the shop teacher involved too if they have a welding class and/or experience?

No shop class, and the guy who ran the equipment before I inherited it retired this year. Time to get my learnin' spurs on.
