100 years, 100 schools.
When Neal Garver opened a one-person engineering firm in 1919, he sparked a series of events that created a positive, lasting impact on the employees, clients, and countless communities Garver has served over the last 100 years—a chain reaction a century in the making.
To celebrate a century of innovative engineering services, Garver donated more than 100 STEM kits to schools across its 12-state footprint and invited them to compete in the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge. Students were challenged to design a Rube Goldberg-style chain reaction machine that accomplishes a simple task in a complicated way.
Grand Champion Announced
Nine Chain Reaction Challenge winners received funding from Garver for their STEM programs. The Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired was named the #GarverChainReaction Grand Champion for their “Gong Show Chain Reaction” submission and for partnering with Garver to keep the chain reaction going by creating STEM kits for other schools for the blind and visually impaired.
