    APSC 150 – Hand Tools (2013)


    Prepare For The Lab

    Lab location: Hebb, Room 22

      • No Sandals or open-toed shoes.   You will likely be asked to come back during another APSC 150 tutorials Sept 20-25th.
      • Dress appropriately.  It should not be a “messy” lab, but you may wish to wear appropriate clothing (some of the hand tools may have some residual grease on them).
      • Watch videos ahead of time.   You can use these videos during the lab as well, but it is good to know where things are heading.




    Lab, Part One: Meet Your Tools – 20 to 30 minutes

    Work in pairs, but each person completes all activities individually.

      • Do all the activities in the video
      • Show  you TA/instructor the completed parts
      • Once parts are marked as completed, move on to Part Two.


    Video 1:  Wear goggles.


    Video 2:   What’s in the box? How some of these tools work.
