The NFPA Fluid Power Challenge promotes fun, hands-on STEM education by challenging middle and high school students to design and build a fluid power mechanism to solve an engineering problem. Teachers are able to introduce practical math and science concepts in a creative environment that students love. NFPA members can get involved in this workforce development program by volunteering as judges in a competition, hosting a competition, or becoming a sponsor. Any middle school, high school, college, university or fluid power company can hold an NFPA Fluid Power Challenge event.
See what the NFPA Fluid Power Challenge is all about! The following video shows multiple perspectives from the event at South Milwaukee High School.
