Garner Holt, the world's largest producer of theme park animatronics, invents a unique approach to STEM learning.

The classroom of the future

The AniMakerspace is what gets kids excited to come to school.

If you’ve been to a popular theme park, you’ve seen one of Garner Holt’s creations. The impressive technique of magically bringing fantasy characters to life is what makes us all feel like we’ve escaped reality and can fully embrace the fun of being part of the story.

Imagine that same magic applied to learning about science, technology, engineering, art, and math. This is precisely what Garner Holt Education through Imagination has done. Where other STEM or STEAM programs may be successful with separate subject focal points, the unique aspect of animatronics not only seamlessly blends science, technology, engineering, art, and math but represents over 50 distinct and promising careers.

Combining animatronics with the concept of a makerspace, Garner Holt Education through Imagination has designed and implemented the ideal STEAM learning environment for schools, appropriately named, AniMakerspace. These custom designed AniMakerspaces bring a level of fun and entertainment to learning complex scientific concepts and are a step up from the traditional makerspace.

AniMakerspaces are like a miniaturized version of Garner Holt Productions, and by learning from their experts, Education through Imagination is able to use that knowledge to design very powerful and effective learning experiences.

The AniMakerspace gives students the opportunity to practice different models of design thinking through hands-on experiences that enliven the continuously evolving relationship between science, engineering, robotics, manufacturing, and automation.

The most rewarding thing for any educator is to see kids enjoy learning and AniMakerspaces are what gets kids excited to come to school. The best thing about AniMakerspaces is that no matter what career students go into, they are learning the valuable 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.

Help us get one in every school in America and make learning magical.
