  • Solving real-world problems

    with innovative thinking.
    The 蒸汽 (S科学, Technology, Engineering, 艺术, and M长沙) program at Rabun Gap spans across all three divisions. 蒸汽 promotes creative problem solving, design thinking, and traditional hands-on skills to prepare students for the future.

    In the Upper School, the 蒸汽 department offers elective classes where students can delve into engineering and design thinking, working on self-directed projects in the Dess Oliver 蒸汽 Center. We also offer classes focused on computer s科学 and machine learning. You’ll find our 蒸汽 students analyzing trends on social media, rebuilding a classic Mini Cooper, and testing water quality in nearby streams. Our 蒸汽 Director facilitates the inclusion of 蒸汽 into the curriculum across all grade levels.
Students of all ages can participate in the 蒸汽 program as an afternoon activity. These after school sessions are led by our divisional 蒸汽 coordinators.
