"Working with Garner Holt Education through Imagination has been, and will continue to be, a very rewarding and positive experience. Their commitment to providing what they promise, and then some, has been a refreshing change to someone who has been in education for 21 years. They bring a fresh new perspective to engaging and instilling hope and purpose in our students that is unheard of at the elementary level. Their engineering and design kits are the perfect connector of engineering, art, and science to every other curricular area. They provide focused hands on training with professionals in the industry and of the equipment that can then be practiced and refined. If any additional help is needed they are a phone call away. Their staff is supportive and friendly, and no request or question is ever unanswered."
"The Garner Holt Education through Imagination Team goes above and beyond all expectations. The partnership between our school and GHETI Team is incomparable to any other partnership I have worked with in the past. They are knowledgeable to what is happening in education and train the teachers to bring it to their students. From the Engineering Challenges to the manufacturing skills, teachers are able to meet all of the Cross Cutting Concepts. Their team has made sure that the teachers are trained and efficient in each of the manufacturing skills so that they are comfortable teaching all of them to their students. The teachers learn how to teach their students entrepreneurship skills and give them real world experiences. This gives students an advantage when they graduate high school, thus, giving them hope for their futures."
