Fairmont High School Receives Grant For Virtual Welding Simulator

A new virtual welding simulator will give Fairmont High School students the opportunity to weld outside of the workshop.

“It’s a virtual so kids don’t burn their eyes. They don’t need a welding helmet. They don’t need welding gloves,” Robert Bonin, Fairmont High School Career and Technical Education Teacher says.

A $10,000 grant from Monsanto has helped provide the high school with two virtual welding simulators.

“They have what looks like a video game. It’s a simulation of welding,” he says.

The software allows students to apply their skills both in and out of the workshop.
