At McCort, he's bringing his skills to 7th and 8th grade students through an
introductory STREAM class, and to McCort students via
applied engineering and technology, digital video production
cyber security/computer science/coding courses. He also serves as the advisor to our middle and high school Technology Student Association (TSA) teams, the Varsity Forensics team, and DMCA's First Lego League teams. But it's what his students are doing in the classroom that really gets him energized.
"Our applied engineering students are currently learning CAD skills through Auto-Desk Inventor," he said. "They're using their new skills to design and build instructional board games for DMCA students to help them learn colors, sight words and how to code."
Once Mr. Ogline's students are ready to produce the games, they'll tap into an array of our STREAM lab tools, including our 3D printer, laser engraver and vinyl printer.
"Our kids are learning foundational engineering skills and strengthening their analytical, critical thinking and team skills at the same time,'' he said. "It's rewarding to see them grow."
