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.
