A Message from Garner Holt
``For me, it's a dream come true.``

I wholeheartedly believe that much of my company’s success is attributed to my shop classes in high school and the teachers who recognized my interests, talents and passions. These teachers who provided me with the freedom and flexibility to learn in the way that learned best, and allowed me to learn through real-world problems and projects that interested me; projects that fostered my creativity and imagination. This is the reason we’ve created Education through Imagination, an education company working to support the STEAM education and career exploration initiatives of districts, schools and classrooms.
I know we’ll continue to bring smiles, thrills, scares, and wonder to theme park guests worldwide. Now, we’re excited to work alongside educators with a goal of helping students discover their own interests, talents and passions through hands-on, real-world learning experiences. For me, it’s a dream come true.

``We are thrilled to be part of the solution for these challenges``

There has never been a better or more exciting time to reimagine the possibilities in education. As we move deeper into the 21st Century, the reality of our changing global economy and its increased reliance on robotics and automation has never been more clear. What we do now to help ensure our students are prepared to enter the world of work as creative, caring and contributing members of society is what will define our success and the impact we’ve had on our students.

At Garner Holt Education through Imagination we are thrilled to be part of the solution for the challenges and opportunities educators face today and those that lie ahead. We are honored to be building products, programs and services around the inspiring story and work of Garner Holt and Garner Holt Productions and the magic they have been creating for over 40 years.

The most exciting thing about Garner Holt Productions is the validation it provides to more creative students. I saw my students' horizons broadened right before my eyes. They also loved knowing this amazing facility is right here in San Bernardino.

This truly was unlike anything I'd ever seen before! It was enlightening! I had always been curious about how animatronics work and I learned that during my visit. Thank you!! OH, and I actually got a chance to shake hands with Garner Holt himself!! Thank you again for the opportunity you provided me as well as my 6th graders! We truly appreciated it and found it memorable!!

The girls in my Troop loved the tour. The girls talked all the way home on all the stuff they got to see and all the stuff the learned it was an amazing opportunity for them. Thank you for the learning experience.

Girl Scout Leader

The professionalism, knowledge, and enthusiasm of the GHP staff enhanced the experience for teachers, parents, and students. I appreciated the opportunities for students to independently problem-solve during the hands-on activities.

Special Education Teacher

The Garner Holt field trip was the ultimate demonstration of what S.T.E.A.M. is supposed to be about. If more schools and districts could see how multiple disciplines interrelate in the real world, perhaps then we could change the way education is being delivered to our students for the better. Garner Holt and companies like it show proof as to why we should fight to keep “shop” classes in our high schools. The skills gained in those classes are the same skills needed to succeed across all industries.

Ben N.
Academy Director

GHP is such a creative, stimulating workplace! I appreciated the opportunity for students to learn about fun, fulfilling jobs where they don’t necessarily need a traditional college education. The focus on learning, creating, and following their passions was a wonderful lesson for the kids.
