Action Challenge Helps Solidify Everyday Fluid Power Education

The Fluid Power Action Challenge has been generating significant interest among students and teachers. The classroom activity grants and our offered curriculum are helping teachers to establish a solid, ongoing, foundation for fluid power education. Here’s how these resources have helped one school in Indiana.

“Indiana Standards 6-8.E1, 6-8.E2 deal with engineering. The lesson provided in this website fits this standard as well as the concept of power and motion. As more of the science teachers are trained to incorporate this lesson, we could have our own challenge between classes. This would be in addition to the regular teams we work with for the annual challenge.”
