Garver supports engineering fairs across three states
As a multi-disciplined engineering, planning, architectural, and environmental services firm, Garver believes it can make the biggest impact by sparking interest and achievement in STEM. That’s why GarverGives is committed to providing the resources that will inspire the next generation of engineers and innovators, wherever their careers take them.
Garver offices in Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas teamed up to support state science and engineering fairs for students ranging from grades 6-12. These outstanding students showcased and competed with their research projects in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This year, Garver provided support for the following fairs: the Middle Tennessee Science and Engineering Fair held at Belmont University, the Oklahoma State Science and Engineering Fair hosted by OSU, and the Texas Science and Engineering Fair hosted by Texas A&M.
At the Texas Science and Engineering Fair, Garver employees spent time volunteering with hundreds of middle and high school students and their families. Engineers from Garver who served as judges met with students and provided feedback on their projects. Garver selected two projects in environmental engineering and water systems for its “Engineers of Tomorrow” award. Garver Transportation Project Engineer Cecily Molina presented the award to the two winning students, one of whom will advance to the International Science and Engineering Fair in Atlanta next month.
“All of the students did such an excellent job on their projects,” Molina said. “I know the future is in great hands.”
This year, GarverGives gave more than $12,500 in support for the Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas state science and engineering fairs. The firm’s corporate giving program helps students prepare for careers in engineering and other STEM industries.
