I am trying to push for my goal of having a mechanics class of some sort at our relatively small school...
I recently created a survey asking questions to see what people know about mechanical things, specifically motorized vehicles. The survey wasn't a public survey it was a survey for people from my own school. The whole reason for this survey is to see if people would like to be generally, more mechanically inclined or to see if they would agree that the school I am currently going to should have a some sort of mechanics to prepare ourselves for the future! I have also created graphs to show some statistics about what i'm trying to accomplish. I will soon transfer some of this data I gathered to a powepoint presentation to show what I've done

I personally thought that people wouldn't know that much about these things, but they do know a little more than I expected. Then again, they don't know that much about mechanical structures and devices, but they have potential to be able to know and work with a lot more things than they do now. There's still many other people, who have not yet taken this survey and don't know much about what I'm trying to do. I'm almost sure that if people really understand what I'm doing and where I'm going with this that they too will become more observant and will gain knowledge. I hope you you really get into this!!

My mission is for you to learn more about things mechanically, so that when you run into a problem or situation you'll be able to know what to do.

First off, I will tell you why I chose this topic. I am very interested in how devices work and I would like to know more. Being mechanicly inclined means that you are good with devoces and structures, but not all people are naturally like this. You could be that person who loves to tinker around with stuff, but you don't exactly know where certain peices of those structures go. You could be logical about it along with having a little common sense, but this will only get you to certain places. Those complicated parts aren't that easy to work with. For example, say you were driving along in the middle of nowhere and your car's tire went flat; you need the "know how" to repair it. You also need the right tools, because you can't always count on your friends or a friendly bi-standard to help you out at whatever time you need them. This is why I want to be more mechanically inclined...
