Fluid Power Club Competes in an NFPA Fluid Power Challenge

Middle School students in Hoffman Estates, Illinois learn about fluid power and design, build and compete in a Fluid Power Challenge as part of their fluid power club.

Last year, NFPA gave Eisenhower Junior High School a grant to do a Challenge event. Tim Yung, the teacher in charge of this club, had said that “We are really excited to start our fluid power activities due to your grant.” This year the club continues and will hold an event again.

When I visited the club, the students were completely into it and told me that they loved creating their own designs.

For more information on bringing fluid power to your local school, 4-H chapter or Girl or Boy Scout troop, contact Lynn Beyer at lbeyer@nfpa.com or 414-778-3364.
