The 4-H NFPA Fluid Power Action Challenge is a team learning event that challenges youth in grades 6-8 to solve an engineering problem using fluid power. Each team will learn about design and build a hydraulic mechanism!
A workshop kit, challenge kit, tool kit, and challenge layout board will be provided upon registration. Arrangements will be made with the coach to deliver the supplies. A max of 10 teams may register for this year’s event.
Beginning Feb 6, registered teams will receive a link to a cloud folder that will contain an orientation video, challenge details, building instructions for the lifter and rotator, and other useful information that will help them throughout the challenge. Approximately mid-way through, teams will meet for a virtual check-in with the 4-H Science Specialist and faculty from Purdue Polytechnic. The challenge will end on March 13, when teams will submit a video of their machine performing the challenge and a copy of their portfolio, all to be judged by local industry professionals. Awards will be announced after that date.
Coaches will need to make proper arrangements, including safety plans, for youth to meet to complete the expectations of the challenge.
Please contact your local Purdue Extension 4-H educator to form a team of 2-4 youth and one adult mentor. 4-H Educators and 4-H volunteers may register teams through 4HOnline.
