Garner Holt Education Through Imagination Uses Animatronics to Enhance Distance Learning

Animatronics are essentially moving lifelike art with fascinating characteristics and abilities that coax the imagination one step closer to belief. Realistic movements, costumes, and sounds work together to transform fantasy into reality.

Regardless of the outer believability, the real magic is everything you can’t see. Never has there been a greater partnership between art and engineering, creativity and math, technology and imagination.

Inspired by the work of Garner Holt Productions, Inc., Garner Holt Education through Imagination is creating solutions to the inherent challenges of distance learning.

In partnerships with schools and educators, Garner Holt Education through Imagination offers hands-on learning experiences through our virtual field trips and workshops. Each virtual experience is paired with an activity kit sent directly to students that are built together with a live expert.

The virtual platform removes geographic barriers and makes it possible to provide these virtual opportunities to schools all over the U.S. and beyond.

The projects are based on animatronic concepts that combine the STEAM areas of science, technology, engineering, art, and math in an engaging, interactive, fun, and creative way. Students see first-hand all of the different and distinct careers involved in building animatronics.

From concept to completion, there are 50 specific STEAM careers collaborating and playing distinctive roles in bringing an animatronic to life. These careers are all in high demand across a wide range of industries and offer students a real-life connection to career exploration.
