See the Excitement Firsthand: Fall Fluid Power Challenge Dates Announced

nfpa challenge

NFPA started the Fluid Power Challenge in 2008 with three teams; now there are 14 Fluid Power Challenge events with over 1,300 students participating each year. And the list continues to grow. The excitement is contagious, and what these students are learning about fluid power – and life skills – is truly amazing. Anyone who can come out to see these middle school students in action will see dedication, perseverance, collaboration, teamwork, and lots of fun. If you would like to witness, be a judge, or make a donation to any one of these great events, please contact Lynn Beyer at lbeyer@nfpa.com or call 414-778-3364.


Please check the NFPA website for new events, times, and locations.
