      W. Rodger Giles Institute for Inquiry

The W. Rodger Giles Institute for Inquiry opened on Jan. 16, 2024. This new facility is the arena in which our students are sharpening their STEM education skills for college and the workplace - design thinking, prototyping, problem solving, programming, and presenting their novel concepts and innovative creations. This facility is one of a kind in the Augusta area and not only hosts traditional science education (biology, chemistry, physics), but expands our technological sciences (coding, robotics, engineering) as well as ventures into the more futuristic science learning tools using digital fabrication (3D printing) and augmented/virtual reality. 

If you are interested in learning more about the Giles Institute and supporting the project now, please email our Director of Development, Kristin Ludwig at
