Jacob Barnes is the 2018 recipient of NFPA’s Fluid Power Robotics Challenge Scholarship. This is a program that awards $40,000 in college scholarships to a high school student that successfully uses fluid power in the design of his or her FIRST or National Robotics League robot.

Using his scholarship, Jacob is now entering his sophomore year at the California Polytechnic State University, where he is studying electrical engineering. We invited him on the podcast to learn more about his fluid power journey as student, and what his career plans might be for the future.
