HazardFactory classes fire up a passion for welding

A Connect2Classes team heats things up with a welding project.

For Connect2Classes CEO, Dallas Jasper, getting to experience a class from her own course marketplace was a welcome change from the office, but selecting a intro to welding course at the HazardFactory was downright intimidating.

She brought one of her team, Michael Duarte-Pedrosa, with her to do some bonding while learning a completely new skill together.

“You aren’t in a cubicle anymore when you attend Quick Intro to Welding,” said Michael. “Once arrived you are greeted by a landscape of nothing but metal with instructor Mckenzie waiting for your arrival to begin sharing her knowledge.”

“You jump right into the course by protecting yourself with safety gear and a discussion on welding, theory, safety and equipment. As the welding mask slides over your head, you realize that this is really going to happen — you are going to melt some metal!” Michael explained.

Their task for the night was assembling a three part welded souvenir to develop different welding skills under the watchful eye of the HazrdFactory’s expert instructors.

“The art of welding, for me, has always been a little mysterious and frankly, a little intimidating.” stated Michael. “The few hours we spent indulging in the trade at the HazardFactory was great team fun and demystified it for me. I now feel I have enough knowledge to do it again on my own, the welds may not be pretty but I could do it! I cannot wait to go back for more.”

The feeling of accomplishment once a project is finished is incredibly powerful. Having something that you physically created after just learning is very empowering and you feel like you’ve accomplishment alot. Surprisingly, the welding workshops are suitable for adults and children; they recently hosted an 8-year-old birthday party that created a metal pterodactyl sculpture.

If you are an organization looking for a team-building event, look no further, the HazardFactory delivers with a wide range of workshops suited to your needs. One of the workshops will have your team working together to design and weld a metal bridge that will undergo real-world structural integrity testing.

“My favorite part of the night was when Rusty took my little welded triangle and hung it from a crane with 500 lbs. dangling from it,” said Dallas. “I was cringing as he hoisted it up and felt like super woman when it held. I can really see how this kind of accomplishment is great for team building.”

Unless your organization has some closet welders, this activity as a team event is an equalizer, allowing all players, men and women, big and small, young and old to contribute and learn while working toward a common goal. Besides working together and developing your teamwork skills these events are absolutely loads of fun!

Whether you are interested in indulging a simple curiosity, learning a new skill for some home repairs, creating industrial metal art, a springboard to a new vocation, or interested in taking your team to the next level, molten metal at the HazardFactory is where it’s at!
