    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 by Jacklyn Decady '19: On Monday, October 30, 2017, Junior members of Kellenberg Memorial High School's STEM Cluster visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, New York. The museum held a STEM Career Expo for students on Long Island. The students got the chance to explore various jobs and opportunities that science, technology, engineering, and math has to offer. The day started out with a gathering in the museum's beautiful Dome Theater where two speakers, Michael Stromer, manager of JetBlue's digital and mobile presence, and Kenneth White, manager of the Office of Educational Programs at Brookhaven National

    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

    On June 6, 2017, Brianna Rubenstein ‘17 was awarded a scholarship from the Junior Volunteers Program at Good Samaritan Hospital. Brianna was awarded this honor after completing over 150 hours of volunteer work, working mainly in the geriatric ward. The Good Samaritan Junior Volunteers Program is designed to give willing high school students an opportunity to donate their time at the hospital. Brianna was a member of Kellenberg’s EMT Club and a 4 year Honor Roll student while at Kellenberg. During her time working at the hospital and after being a member of the EMT club, Brianna’s interest in becoming

    By Aidan York '20: Friday, May 26, 2017, eight members of the Kellenberg academic quiz bowl team traveled to Atlanta, GA to attend the 2017 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament. 304 teams from all across the country (and beyond - a team from China was in attendence) had qualified through different tournaments during the year. These were the best teams in the Nation out of some 5000 high schools that participate in quiz bowl. Our A team of senior Calvin Bernic, juniors Evan Katsounis, Aidan Dowd, and freshman Aidan York had qualified, while our B team of Senior Mike

    After celebrating Mass on Ascension Thursday, 20 juniors spent the day learning molecular genetics laboratory techniques at the Cold Spring Harbor DNA Learning Center. The students worked with enzymes that cut large DNA fragments into smaller fragments. Since they were working on the molecular level, students learned how to work with micropipettes to measure extremely small amounts of DNA, enzymes, and solutions. After three hours working in the laboratory, students were able to visualize the DNA fragments and view their results. The trip also included a tour of the Northwell Health Core Laboratory which processes medical specimens 24 hours per day.
