Help your female (and male!) students identify critical tools so they'll be more confident and successful in your trades classes.

See a clip from the Auto Technician's Toolbox video that gives your students an introduction to tools used for steering and suspension systems.

For many female (and male) students entering technical classes, their first challenge is tool identification. Women tend to have less informal tool-use experience outside of the classroom and may find it difficult to identify tools when they enter the trades. Many male students also don't have these skills when they first enroll in trades programs. Demonstrating tool-use in the classroom is a great way to keep your students engaged!

This six-part video series opens the trades "toolbox" and introduces your students to basic trade-specific equipment used in a variety of occupations, including plumber, carpenter, mason, welder, electrician and automotive technician.

Each of the six "Tools of the Trade: Inside the Technician's Toolbox" videos demonstrate to students exactly how each tool is used, and explains why each tool is used in real-world settings. The videos also offer a bigger picture of the industry itself, including an inside look at career options.
