NFPA Program Introduces Thousands of Students to Fluid Power in 2016

NFPA-Fluidpowerchallenge2NFPA workforce programs, such as the Fluid Power Action Challenge, fluid power classroom activities, and Student Career Connection events taught a total of 3,623 students about fluid power in 2016.

With the help of the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation, the NFPA Education and Workforce Development programs were able to help more schools participate in the challenges, bring fluid power to their classrooms, and build fluid power kits. Many were also able to visit local companies to talk to experts and learn more about the fluid power industry.

Nfpa-challenge2Many thanks to all of the NFPA members involved in workforce programs for schools. Your help and support make these events a success and change the lives of young students.

If you are interested in participating in an upcoming challenge, please check out the advantages of membership in the NFPA and check out the scheduled Fluid Power Action Challenges.
