Inside the Electrician’s Toolbox Video:
After a general introduction of electricity -- electrons, current, kilowatts and the journey of electrical power from utility company to home -- this 27-minute program examines the work materials and tools commonly used by an electrician.
Wires, cables, conduits, boxes, receptacles and switches are illustrated, and the tools required to cut and run cable or conduit, detect and test voltage and wire or connect fixtures are shown in action. Wiring diagrams and blueprints are also discussed, and safety is stressed throughout. The DVD concludes by highlighting resources that are available to those interested in becoming electricians.
The DVD comes with a downloadable instructor’s guide featuring educational standards, vocabulary, discussion questions and project ideas for your students!

The WomenTech Educators Training got us thinking intentionally about who we were going to target for outreach, how we were going to target them, and how we would follow up to make sure we had actual results linked to the different programs and events that we were holding. Since then, it has grown organically and blossomed into something that our college just does naturally.
I think getting together as a team with intention—because we're all so busy—and developing a written plan that we could stick to was what made all the difference. I don’t think we would have ever done that if it wasn't for the WomenTech Educators Training.
