MISHAWAKA — Jimtown Junior High School took home the overall champion trophy from Daman Products’ 2017 Fluid Power Action Challenge at Bethel College this month.

About 112 students from four schools participated in the March 3 event, which had them compete by creating hydraulic or pneumatic machines to solve engineering problems. The machines could only be made using wood, paper, glue, tubing and syringes.
