STREAM Instructor
As our new STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Math) instructor, Justin Ogline brings several years of experience to the position, including three years leading the well-recognized STREAM program at Divine Mercy Catholic Academy (DMCA).

Mr. Ogline works with students in his Computer Science class, using Java to help guide them through coding exercises.
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 , and 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."
Clockwise: Congratulations to Mr. Schellhammer and Scholastic Quiz team  members Connor Coyle, Hubert Liu, Meghan Smitherman, Missy Murin, Lauren Pursel, Ian Coyle and DMCA's R.J. Shayesteh for winning the competitive Central-Western Scholastic Quiz League championship this month; to 14 seniors who were recently awarded scholarships to Saint Francis University; to our students who worked side-by-side with veterans this month; and to the cast and crew of Who Poisoned His Meatball , who performed to enthusiastic crowds this weekend!
