   Six NDCL seniors advance
   to Believe in Ohio state competition

Based upon their stellar performance in online regional competition, six NDCL seniors will advance to the state competition of the Ohio Academy of Science's Believe in Ohio program.

Our students, who competed in the regional event in teams of three, represented the only winning teams of any Catholic high school in the entire state.

Zach DeRespiris, Evan Fonash, and Mario Misiti created a STEM commercialization plan for Aerobic Success Enhancement Masks (ASEM). These sophisticated devices maximize athletic workouts by enabling users to adjust their aerobic capacity by controlling oxygen intake with a motorized ventilation system.

The STEM commercialization plan presented by Gabrielle Lynch, Addison Schermer, and Rylee Yackin detailed the development of anti-fog swimming goggles fabricated with two layers of hydrocarbon polymers and a water-absorbent hydrogel lining.

Believe in Ohio is a comprehensive, curriculum-based STEM and entrepreneurship program that seeks to create a culture of innovation by preparing high school students to contribute to Ohio's innovation economy. 

Science teacher Mrs. Kelly Coyne and academic coach Mr. Tony Hodun advised the students as they developed their award-winning projects.
