I wholeheartedly believe that much of my company’s success is attributed to my shop classes in high school and the teachers who recognized my interests, talents and passions. These teachers who provided me with the freedom and flexibility to learn in the way that I learned best, and allowed me to learn through real-world problems and projects that interested me; projects that fostered my creativity and imagination. This is the reason we’ve created Education through Imagination, an education company working to support the STEAM education and career exploration initiatives of districts, schools and classrooms.
I know we’ll continue to bring smiles, thrills, scares, and wonder to theme park guests worldwide. Now, we’re excited to work alongside educators with a goal of helping students discover their own interests, talents and passions through hands-on, real-world learning experiences. For me, it’s a dream come true.
“Imagination, not just in the sense of creativity, but that students will be able to imagine a future brighter than the one they currently envision” – Garner L. Holt

There has never been a better or more exciting time to reimagine the possibilities in education. As we move deeper into the 21st Century, the reality of our changing global economy and its increased reliance on robotics and automation has never been more clear. What we do now to help ensure our students are prepared to enter the world of work as creative, caring and contributing members of society is what will define our success and the impact we’ve had on our students.
