• Vt.’s Lyndon Institute gets virtual welder

    LYNDON — The high school that serves the northeastern Vermont town of Lyndon and surrounding communities now has what officials are calling the first “virtual welder” in the region.

    Students and adults in the school’s continuing education program will be able to refine their welding techniques without the expense of gas, wire or other raw materials. The Burlington Technical Center has a similar machine.

    Most of the $49,000 cost came from grants from the Vermont Department of Labor and Agency of Education. The school paid the remainder from its welding budget.

    The virtual welder is similar to a common video game. The student wears a welding helmet that offers a virtual display. Speakers in the helmet give students audio cues.
