2023-24 Fluid Power Action Challenge Season & Event Organizer’s Meeting

NFPA kicked-off the 2023-24 Fluid Power Action Challenge season on August 11 with a meeting for event organizers, past volunteers, and educator partners. The purpose was to share this season’s challenge information and update attendees on the resources available and needed to successfully plan, manage, and execute an event. If you are not familiar with the Fluid Power Action Challenge,  it is a STEM-based competition that challenges middle school students to solve an engineering problem using fluid power. The students work in teams to design and build a fluid power mechanism and compete against other teams in a timed competition.

Contact James Foster at jfoster@nfpa.com with questions about hosting or to communicate your interest in volunteering at a Fluid Power Action Challenge.
