The Fluid Power Challenge is a series of math and science competitions designed to connect today’s students to tomorrow’s fluid power careers.
Middle school, high school, and college – there is a Challenge for you!
The NFPA Fluid Power Action Challenge is a competition that challenges middle school students to solve an engineering problem using fluid power.
The NFPA Robotics Challenge is a new scholarship program for high school students that launched with the 2016-17 school year.
This STEM competition challenges college engineering students to redesign a traditional bicycle using hydraulics as the mode of power transmission.
The National Fluid Power Association is proud to offer the Fluid Power Challenge to middle school, high school, and college students across the country.
The Challenge is an interactive way to introduce students to the fascinating world of hydraulics, pneumatics, and engineering, and can help put them on the path to a rewarding career in fluid power.

I recently caught up with Spencer Tiegs, the 2017 NFPA Robotics Challenge winner. Spencer won the $40,000 scholarship ($10,000 per year for four years) for his work in using fluid power in his team's FIRST® Robotics competition robot when he was senior in high school. He is using this scholarship to attend the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) Mechanical…
