NFPA Leads Students to a Great Career Pathway

NFPA exhibited at the Washington High School’s Fall iFair in Milwaukee, WI on November 11. The event showcased engineering and manufacturing careers and the new mobile app development program at Washington High School. Middle-school age students from across the city interacted with more than twenty business and education organizations to learn more about these high-demand careers.

“We’re excited to showcase the coursework we have to offer and how that connects to college and career pathways,” Washington Principal Tonya Adair said.

Lynn Beyer, NFPA’s Workforce Program Manager, talked to more than 600 middle school students about the exciting opportunities available in the fluid power industry. Students got to try out a lifter and rotational arm mechanism and these activities really drew them to the NFPA table.

If you would like to speak to high school students or give students a tour of your company, please contact Lynn at or (414) 778-3364.
