Bishop Dunn Memorial School Hosts Science Extravaganza with Mount Saint Mary College Students

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 opportunity to engage in hands-on experiments led by Mount Saint Mary College students. The college students, under the guidance of Jodie Fahey, an associate professor of Chemistry at the Mount, mentored the children in small projects that explored various aspects of science.

Bishop Dunn Memorial School has been committed to holistic development for children since its founding in 1883. Founded on the Mount campus, the school focuses on academic, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical growth. 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., which captured the attention of Bishop Dunn Memorial School students and demonstrated how fun and exciting science can be.

The Mount maintains a strong partnership with Bishop Dunn through its fieldwork programs for education students. Many Mount graduates go on to work at Bishop Dunn, further strengthening their bond. For example, Principal Nancy Benfer is a Mount alumna from the class of 2004.
