Dallas ISD joins Garver for the Chain Reaction Challenge
Teamwork and creativity are both integral in the engineering design process. Garver put that to a test while teaming with the Dallas Independent School District for the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge at the Dallas Museum of Art.
Along with representatives from the City of Dallas, Dallas Water Utilities, and Trinity River Authority of Texas, Garver hosted students from three Dallas ISD schools for one of its latest events. There, the students were teamed with students from other schools, to promote the skills needed to work together on the fly.
“I think it’s just so exciting to watch kids interact with other kids,” said Garver Texas Region Water Director Jeff Sober. “It was really neat to see them come together and form a bond over this Chain Reaction Challenge, and start communication and team working to try to solve a challenge.”
To help celebrate its centennial year in 2019, Garver is providing STEM kits and monetary donations to 100 schools across the country. By participating in the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge, students are being introduced to core STEM concepts, design processes, critical-thinking skills, and the importance of perseverance.
