Visiting ConExpo-Con/AGG this month? For a fun diversion, check out what hundreds of high school students will be learning about the construction industry as they compete in the AEM Construction Challenge. In addition to the “Infrastructure Dialogue” and “Equipment and Careers Product Development,” the students had to create and build construction machines that must accomplish moving and lifting tasks in “Road Warrior.” Be sure to stop by the AEM booth in the Grand Lobby between North Hall and Central Hall from March 11-15 to see what these students have built with motion control and fluid power components.
