Fluid Power Competition
The Canadian Fluid Power Challenge is intended to provide Grade 7 and 8 students with hands-on experience building a controlled mechanism with real world applicability and to open their eyes and those of their teachers to technology careers and, in particular, careers in fluid power. The Challenge is an excellent complement to the science and technology curriculum at these grade levels.
At a minimum, the organizers hope that the Challenge will encourage students to select more mathematics and science courses in their high school programs to keep their options open for technology-based post-secondary studies. Click for program resources.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have not been able to continue with our Local and National Challenges. However, we have developed a Pick n Place Challenge that still provides middle school teachers with a way to bring fluid power alive in their classrooms. Click here for more info.
