Garner Holt uses innovation to execute STEAM education

INSPIRING MINDS

STEAM education includes science, technology, engineering, the *arts*, and math. If you had to think of just one thing that brings all of these elements together...the *perfect topic to execute STEAM in the classroom with real-world applications...what would you come up with? California-based Garner Holt has a pretty good answer, based on more than 45 years in the business of *animatronics. Yes, we're talking those sophisticated puppets...robots that bring characters to life in theme parks around the world. Bill Tynan is the Director of Secondary and Post-Secondary Education and Workforce Development at Garner Holt Education through Imagination. In 2021, this team was honored with a *Gold Edison Award in the category of Steam Centered Creative Learning for their "AniMakerspace"...custom state-of-the-art hands-on learning environments that seamlessly blend science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Interview with Garner Holt

EarzUp!

Look, we are just going to say it: Garner Holt has done more for theme parks than just about anybody - we'd even put him right up there with Walt himself in that category. Many folks won't know his name, but we have all seen his work around various Disney Parks (and beyond!). Today we are lucky enough to chat with Garner about his animatronic empire, how he got started crafting his moving artwork, and going over some of his more famous works. After we calmed down, we talk a bit about the Walt Disney Family Museum again, and how they are coming on the show in the near future - very exciting for us! Then we do some Disney News and finally end the show. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
