Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems
The Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems CDE balances the problem-solving abilities of each team with individual knowledge and skill performance in systematic areas. The participants take a written test and demonstrate their skills through hands-on activities in the following system areas: machinery and equipment systems, electrical systems, energy systems, environmental and natural resources systems and structural systems.

Email from Event Coordintor (2/17/17):
Ag. Mechanics Coaches,
I’ve attached the guidelines for the State Ag. Mechanics Contest, set for Friday, April 14th at Perry Technical Institute in Yakima, Wa.
You will notice one change, from the contests in the past. The test will be 25 questions, worth 2 points each for a total of 50 points, instead of the usual 100 points.
All other areas will remain the same as in past contest. The team activity will be worth 100 points, as in the past. This score will be added to the team score.
I will email you updates to the contest, if they change, and include the team activity area, as I get it from Perry Tech.
Hope this helps, and let me know if you have questions. I’ll be gone until the 6th of March, but will try to keep in touch with my emails. You can call me at 360-708-1075 also, if you have questions.
Thanks, Randy Brown
