Exploratory Driveline Trainer

BY Eric Perry

Cape Cod Regional Technical High School

Goals, objectives, and activities

This grant will be used to make a drive line trainer to provide students with the knowledge and hands on skills needed to be competent in the workplace. Students will be able to define all the drive line parts and develop the skills needed to further themselves in successfully rebuilding components such as hydraulic systems, rear axles systems, brake systems and suspension and steering of mechanical vehicles.In conclusion, students will take a self-assessment to prove their ability and knowledge of subject matter.

( See Attachment Below)

How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)

The project will be evaluated by providing a practical hands-on demonstration on the trainer, encompassing  Mass State Frameworks outlined in the chapter 74 program.

Students will be tested in : hydraulics, power train diagnostics,brake systems, electrical and fastening systems   (e.g. see attachment below)

Benefit to the students and the school

Students who are interested in engineering, fabrication, electrical , marine and auto tech electives will benefit most from this trainer . In addition the trainer could also help provide a means of a visual aid to help students with learning challenges meet their goals and instill confidence in their ability to become confident employees in their profession.
