Forestview Middle School students brought home three trophies from the National Fluid Power Association’s fluid power engineering competition through the University of Minnesota.

The competition was designed as a two-day event where eighth graders from across the state were invited to compete in a science, technology, engineering and math competition, specifically designed to introduce the study of fluid power.

Competition day was Jan. 14. Students were to rebuild their fluid power systems using only the portfolio they created. Students were judged on five categories: portfolio design, teamwork skills, interview questions, best design and challenge winners.

Forestview girls took three out of the five trophies: teamwork, best design and challenge champions.

The engineering instructors involved at Forestview were Gant Haglin, Cory Olson and Joe Pohlkamp. The students participating in the competition from Brainerd were a group of 20 eighth-grade girls with an interest in engineering and design.
