Meet The Machines

Get ready for oversized hands-on fun when Ohio CAT brings a collection of construction equipment to Great Lakes Science Center for “Meet the Machines!”

Families and kids of all ages will enjoy getting up close with construction equipment from Ohio CAT. Machines on display will include a backhoe loader, excavator, compact track loader, wheel loader, trucks and the new CAT utility vehicle.

Guests can climb up and get behind the wheel of a machine, test their skills in an Ohio CAT equipment operation simulator, and check out live demonstrations in the Science Center’s Force and Motion and Break It science shows.

Hands-on activities include Make it Move, which challenges guests to move an object using a simple machine which provides a mechanical advantage and superhero-like strength! Complete a circuit and learn how energy gets work done at the Power Up activity station, and take the controls of a robot and maneuver it through a miniature city in a Robot Warriors activity.

Ohio CAT (www.OhioCat.com) is the authorized Caterpillar dealer for Ohio, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana and has served the equipment and power system needs of local businesses since 1945. Ohio CAT participates in the “I Build America –– Ohio” initiative which seeks to raise awareness about the construction industry and help build the future workforce needed to fill these important jobs in our community. All activities are included with paid general admission.
