Year in Review

[ “Year in Review”  is where you should reflect on the past year and show how you have evolved as a person and as a student.  You may want to focus on your growth in a particular area (as a leader, scholar, researcher, etc.) or you may want to talk about your overall experience over the past year.  For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


[ “G.O.A.L.S.” is a place where students write about how their planned, current, and future activities may fit into the Honors & Scholars G.O.A.L.S.: Global Awareness, Original Inquiry, Academic Enrichment, Leadership Development, and Service Engagement.

Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc .
Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.
Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.
Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.]


[“Career” is where you can collect information about your experiences and skills that will apply to your future career.  Like your resume, this is information that will evolve over time and should be continually updated.   For more information, go to: Delete these instructions and add your own post.]


I presented a project on nuclear fusion. I created this presentation because nuclear fusion can be a viable resource for renewable energy in the future. Bonding two hydrogen atoms can create enormous amounts of energy that can aid in a self-sufficient process producing energy to power the world. Iter is a nuclear fusion plant being built currently and is still in its experimental stages.

About Me

20160617_163927Hello my name is Steven Dengler. I am a first year Green Engineering Scholar student as well as a first year Ohio State student. I was born at the Cleveland Clinic on September 7, 1997 to my mother, Susan, and father, Jeff. I grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio called Parma. As a child, I was extremely active and played various sports, including basketball, soccer, football, baseball, and many other sports. I attended a public elementary and middle school and went to high school at Normandy in Parma. I am now a second year student at the Ohio State University in the Chemical Engineering program. I managed two pools in the Cleveland area and lifeguarded at both of those pools. It was a great experience and I gained many leadership qualities.

I love to snowboard during the winters. I worked at a local ski resort near Cleveland and snowboarded at least 2 times a week. Furthermore, I enjoy boating with my family and friends at a nearby inlet lake. At the lake, I enjoy water skiing and especially wakeboarding. To this day, I still have a passion for all sports and would like to participate in them here at The Ohio State University.

Throughout my life thus far I have traveled to various places around the country and the world with my family. I love the Caribbean area and Europe, but I also enjoy what the United States has to offer with all of its national parks and amazing mountains.

I cannot wait to see what this year brings me and the opportunities that I will engage in!
