The annual event “The Forest at the School” took place on May 15-16 and attracted nearly 600 eighth-grade students to visit SCA. Ortviken was responsible for a guided tour of the factory and other SCA units showed their activities in an area outside.
Kristoffer Edlund usually works as an operator at Massa but set up as a guide during her free break.
“I remember how it was when I went to study visits myself, how valuable it was to get a committed guide who gave insight into their activities”, says Kristoffer who acted as a guide for the first time.
At Logistics they talked about the business and the students got to try to load a model container with a model timber package.
Another challenge was found in the Wood business area, where the participants had to try to calculate the number of liters in a timber stock. For their help, they had a tape measure. It was also free to google how they would count.
At SCA Maintenance they competed to screw on the right nuts on a bunch of screws.
As appreciated, they got freshly grilled burgers.
“The record was taken by a guy on Wednesday who did eat seven burgers”, says Jan Ericsson, who handled the grill.
