    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 by Jacklyn DeCady '19: On Wednesday, December 6, 2017, Kellenberg’s STEM Cluster held a talk for students interested in the field of nursing. Lisa Gallagher, a Nurse Practitioner from North Shore University Hospital, visited Kellenberg Memorial to educate students about nursing and the many career opportunities that it has to offer. Gallagher specializes in Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgery and spends most her time in the Intensive Care Unit. Members of both the STEM Cluster and Kellenberg Memorial’s Health Sciences Club were presented with a slideshow that explained the various branches of the profession. In addition, the students were given

    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

    Article by Rachel Siegel '20: On a cold and rainy Tuesday evening, Kellenberg students traveled to Rockville Centre to take part in Molloy College's STEM Day. Upon arriving, the students and their peers attended a presentation in the Madison Theater, which covered brief overviews of seven different categories of STEM careers ranging from Allied Health Sciences and Biology to Computer Science and Mathematics. From there, the eager students went into two consecutive breakout sessions with Molloy professors and alumni to learn more about their potential career paths. The smaller breakout sessions provided a one-on-one experience and allowed students and their

    Students of the STEM cluster started the day with a STEM lecture about wind drag, resistance, gravity, and the engineering behind the wind tunnel that makes all of this possible. Afterwards, students were trained on the proper flying technique and hand signals needed to have a successful flight. After training, students took a short flight with Rudy, our iFly instructor, to get the feel of their body position in the wind tunnel. During their second trip, students experienced a high fly, more advanced flight and even did some tricks at 30 ft in the air.

    Article & photos by Madison Callinan ‘18: Kellenberg Memorial is a wonderful place to grow not only for students but also for butterflies! Latin Schoolers watched the creatures transition from an egg to a caterpillar to a chrysalis to an adult butterfly in Kellenberg Memorial's science lab. Everything from the golden specks on the pupas to the flapping of their wings brings the material students learned in class to life. The middle schoolers themselves are also in the process of transitioning into young adults. The butterfly serves as a wonderful reminder that “you’ll never know how far you can fly
