Overview

Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by using high heat to melt the parts together and allowing them to cool, causing fusion. Welding is distinct from lower temperature techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal (parent metal).

It is a specialized career that is highly sought after. Youth can receive a great introduction to this fascinating process by completing this honor.
