“...the "Jobs of the Future" do not need scientists who have memorized the periodic table. In fact, business leaders say they are looking for creative, independent problem solvers in every field, not just math and science. Yet in most schools, STEM subjects are taught as a series of memorized procedures and vocabulary words, when they are taught at all”

Sylvia Libow Martinez
Author, Invent to Learn

“The fact is, that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed – it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”

"We forget that our responsibility isn’t solely to teach memorization or the mechanics of a task but to spark a curiosity that empowers students to learn on their own."

George Couros
Author of The Innovator's Mindset

"We need to move beyond the idea that an education is something that is provided for us and toward the idea that an education is something that we create for ourselves."

"My name is Sasha and I was one of the students that attended the field trip with UNLV last week, I wanted to personally thank you for the tour and for providing us with a project to finish at our home. This has been the most educational and the most memorable experience I have had in my college education. Thank you so much to the Garner Holt team for creating such an amazing experience and for allowing me to be a part of it!"

"My daughter is there right now. Dropped her off this morning. Honestly, I wish I could have called off work to stay with her. The little peek I saw seemed amazing. ...It's the first time I've ever been jealous of something my daughter gets to do."
