Year 8 Trip to Caterpillar UK
15 Students visited the UK headquarters of Caterpillar at their production facility in Desford on 16th January 2020. They were introduced to the Caterpillar business, then enjoyed a factory tour to see the diggers and loaders being manufactured. They then visited the company training facility and competed to find the best team to put a brake and accelerator pedal assembly together, fixing a ‘CAT’ logo in perfect position with no bubbles or wrinkles and then using a robotic arm with a scoop to collect the most amount of gravel in a timed run. At the end, all students received Caterpillar merchandise and the competition winners received a Caterpillar machine badge.
