Mr. Grant P Garner

STEM / Career & Technology / Engineering

Welcome/Introduction

The School of Engineering offers learners a chance to complete their high school education in an environment that is enjoyable for them. Learners in the School of Engineering come from many backgrounds. They do not have to be great at science and math to know that they want to be an engineer. What they need to have is curiosity about the world around them. Our learners like to make a difference in the world around them, they like to take things apart and figure out how they work, they like to build things, they like to create. 
 
Engineering allows learners to practice classroom lessons on real-world projects. Solar cars, underwater robots, and high-powered rockets are just some of the projects our students have worked on. Learners take the knowledge they learn in class and apply it to these projects with the assistance of the instructors. 
 
Grant transitioned from Civil Engineering and land development into teaching in 2005 and also has a background in construction, as well. He has been with CISD since 2007, when he joined the CHS School of Engineering. In 2018, Grant helped jumpstart CHS9, but has now returned to the main CHS campus. The School of Engineering is a 4-year pre-college engineering program focusing on design in which learners work on projects that prepare them for college STEM disciplines.  Activities expose learners to design, applications of math and science, electronics, kinematics, robotics and coding.  Learners have begun Swift Playgrounds and Swift as a core component of their coding instruction.  In addition to teaching engineering, Grant teaches robotics.
