The Rabun Gap STEAM program has been busy this fall!  Focus for the first trimester was on flight.  Students built a variety of flying machines while learning the fundamentals of RC flight.  Their designs, mostly original, have included Flying Wings, Gliders, Predator Drones, as well as more traditional designs.  In all, they have broken over forty propellers in well over forty test flights.  Through the process of brainstorming, designing, prototyping, testing, analyzing results, and repeating we are proud to have ended the trimester with a number of successful designs.  Students in the Rabun Gap STEAM program have developed an appreciation for what it takes to turn their ideas into a reality, as well as a foundation in flight and RC technology.

In the winter trimester, STEAM students will focus on agriculture and robotics as we attempt to create Smart Chicken Tractors.  Stay tuned for more information.
