Mount Saint Mary College and Bishop Dunn Memorial School team up for a science-filled adventure

Students from Bishop Dunn school experience hands-on science experiments led by older students

Bishop Dunn Memorial School in Newburgh recently hosted a science event where young scholars had the chance to work on hands-on projects led by Mount Saint Mary College students. The Mount students, under the guidance of Jodie Fahey, an associate professor of Chemistry at the college, mentored the children in small experiments that explored various aspects of science.

One of the highlights of the event was a density experiment conducted by Mount Saint Mary College student Ashley Leonor from New Windsor, N.Y. The experiment captivated the Bishop Dunn Memorial School students and demonstrated how fun and exciting science can be.

Bishop Dunn Memorial School, located on the Mount campus, has been committed to holistic development since its founding in 1883. The school focuses on academic growth as well as spiritual, emotional, social, and physical development for children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

The Mount maintains a strong partnership with Bishop Dunn, with Mount Education students regularly participating in fieldwork at the school under the guidance of experienced Bishop Dunn faculty. Many Mount graduates go on to work at Bishop Dunn, further strengthening the bond between the two educational institutions. Principal Nancy Benfer is a Mount alumna from the class of 2004.
