Parker Hannifin Sponsors Fluid Power Action Challenge Event in Ohio

In March, Parker Hannifin Corporation sponsored and provided judges for a Fluid Power Action Challenge in Ohio. Twenty-three students from Chagrin Falls and Kenston Middle Schools participated in the event in which they designed and built their own pneumatic lifter and rotational device.

According to a representative from Chagrin Falls Middle School, the event was very beneficial for the students who participated. “Students have taken away real world engineering design skills and a greater knowledge of fluid power and its uses,” she said.
