As of July 1, 2014, NFPA will be taking grant applications to fund new Fluid Power Challenge events. Schools can apply for grants up to $3,500—challenge kits cost $175 each, so NFPA would cover that cost for up to twenty teams.
The NFPA Fluid Power Challenge is a competition that challenges students to solve an engineering problem using fluid power. They work in teams to design and build a fluid power mechanism, and then compete against other teams in a timed competition.
