GBN has offered its students the opportunity to learn the craft of welding since 1959. For the first time, seven female students are taking part in this elective course. Students learn about different methods of welding, including arc welding, which uses electricity to melt metals. The goal is to train students to become welders rather than to train them to think project-based. In addition to receiving HS credit, students can also receive college credits through Oakton Community College as part of the district's dual credit program.
