The National Fluid Power Association (www.nfpa.com), in conjunction with its pneumatic manufacturer members, has launched the Fundamentals of Pneumatics, an online education program that covers the basics of pneumatic technology for those who want to learn about basic pneumatic principles. For more information, go to http://rbi.us.ca/3850-548.
George Leopold's talk at last week's Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis helped restore astronaut and engineer Gus Grissom's role in the beginnings of NASA, and outlined how Grissom played a pivotal role in winning the Space Race.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
