Projects

The introductory projects below are presented in a standardized form that provides:

Introductory projects are designed to be used in a class where all students build the same projects to achieve overall student outcomes. 

The Small SAE Projects are being developed as a resource for projects that can be used in classes as optional projects or Ag Mechanics SAE.   These plans provide less direction and guide the student toward building a portfolio of skills.  Small SAE projects are designed to be built by students with some basic skills as individual projects.  Worksheets are designed to help the student document the project.  Sample Completed Worksheet.
