Bryant Middle School robotics students recently toured Garver corporate offices in North Little Rock, Arkansas to familiarize themselves with what a working engineer does on a daily basis. The students built robots for an upcoming robotics competition, which they brought to share with Garver.
“The design and programming skills some of these kids exhibit are incredible,” said Garver Senior Electrical Specialist Mike Massey. “I’ve gotten a peek into the future of engineering, and it looks bright.”
“The students would not stop talking about Garver the entire ride back to school,” said Jason Price, who teaches pre-engineering at BMS. “The excitement of being an engineer was more present than ever before."
Garver is a proud sponsor of the pre-engineering program at BMS, which is a Project Lead the Way school. PLTW is an internationally recognized provider for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum and teacher training.
