Industries such as automotive, manufacturing, and robotics rely on the power of pneumatics every day. As the use of pneumatics increases so does the demand of workers that have a solid understanding and familiarity of the various systems currently used in industry today. The pneumatics curriculum provides students the opportunity to build and experiment with a pneumatic system. Students work with procedures such as measuring airflow rate, controlling the rate of extension and retraction through pressure settings, and much more. Bonus activities allow students to research careers and additional information about pneumatics using the Internet.
