Augusta prepares for new science and technology institute

Augusta Prep teacher Eric Miller already knows how he and his students will use the school’s new tech facility.

“We’re going to build a car,” said the school’s motorsports engineering instructor. “We build electric cars, so when we get in we’ll build a new one, maybe a motorcycle and whatever else they want to build; the sky’s the limit.”

For Augusta National Reserve officials who broke ground Tuesday at the W. Rodger Giles Inquiry, the sky is truly the limit. The institute’s astronaut logo helps symbolize the future of the currently enrolled 2-year-old prep students, who will graduate in 2038, in a world that already includes NASA, Elon Musk’s SpaceX rocket and the Chinese Space Agency, said college dean Derrick Willard. Everyone is working hard to send humans to Mars.
