NFPA Fluid Power Challenge Introduces Students to Fluid Power – Video

NFPA Fluid Power ChallengeThe 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.
