The 5-minute Foundation Impact Video that premiered last month at the 2016 NFPA Annual Conference in San Antonio is available for viewing. Thanks to the support of our donors, the Foundation has been able to continue its work in helping the industry meet its education and workforce development needs. The video quickly outlines the impact of four key areas:
- Engaging middle and high school students through the Fluid Power Challenge.
- Supporting fluid power teaching laboratories and resources at technical schools and universities through grants.
- Helping the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power provide pre-competitive fluid power research and education opportunities.
- Bringing industry professionals and fluid power researchers together for education and networking at the Fluid Power Research and Innovation Conference (FPIRC).
