They are new students so I have to slowly lead them into the thematic areas of exploration. And this theme - screw industry is also a new try! In fact, it is very hard and dangerous in the screw factory. In addition to endure hot environment, we have to pay attention to the discharge of iron. If they don’t pay attention, the skin will be cut. In addition, it is also a very noisy environment, sound mechanical operation is often as high as 85 dB or more,. The employees must wear earplugs in order to work here for a long time. Because we want to explore the topic so of course we have to enter the factory to interview and experience which is the biggest challenge we have.
