For the third consecutive year, Notre Dame cosponsored the National Fluid Power Association Fluid Power Challenge for intermediate school students in the South Bend Community School Corp. The event was held Dec. 7 in Stepan Center.
Thirteen teams from 10 schools spent the morning building machines that they had designed and prototyped over six weeks as part of the program. Judges evaluated portfolios, including blueprints, drawings and discarded designs, and observed the students’ teamwork, safety and other skills.
