    Early in the morning on January 11, a busload of sophomore and junior chemistry students from Kellenberg Memorial ventured to Queens College for their 21st Annual Science Open House. As students toured the campus and took to the laboratory, they participated in a number of hands-on experiments. In the lab, students were shown how to use liquid nitrogen to make ice cream. Later in the day, students were treated to the Thomas J. Hayden Chemistry Show where they watched chemical compounds react, change color, freeze, thaw, and explode. The trip was a positive experience for all involved and allowed students to develop ideas

    Article & Photos by Rachel Siegel '20: Easy. Simple. These words were the focus of Mr. Monte Leeper’s STEM architecture talk, which took place on Wednesday, November 8. During the talk, Mr. Leeper expounded on his past experiences and how they built up to where he is today. He described how as a young boy, he was originally drawn to the principles that he still uses today when designing structures, and even formulated how he visualizes buildings before they’re down on paper. He explained how easy and simple was not the way out, and how he combats those in the
