The Fluid Power Action Challenge teams will come together again on Challenge Day to put their projects to work. They use the same tools and an identical kit of supplies to recreate their unique mechanisms, which they use in the competition to pick up weighted objects and place them on a platform. Teams are graded in a number of areas, including total points, portfolio ideas, design, and teamwork.
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. and the day ends by 3 p.m. What will teams need to participate? A team, or multiple teams, of four middle school students (at least two girls per team preferred), plus a desire to learn about hydraulics and pneumatics.
