Students make science exciting for children at Bishop Dunn

Bishop Dunn Memorial School in Newburgh recently hosted a hands-on science event for young scholars. The event, led by Jodie Fahey, an associate professor of Chemistry at Mount Saint Mary College, provided children with the opportunity to engage in various projects that explored pH levels and encouraged them to form their own hypotheses.

The school, founded in 1883 on the Mount campus, is dedicated to the overall development of its students from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Through partnerships with organizations like Mount Saint Mary College, Bishop Dunn offers unique learning opportunities that foster a love for science and discovery.

During the recent event on March 19, Mount Saint Mary College student Ashley Leonor from New Windsor impressed Bishop Dunn Memorial School students with a density experiment. The close relationship between the college and Bishop Dunn allows for collaboration and support between the two institutions. Mount Education students often engage in fieldwork at Bishop Dunn, gaining valuable experience under the guidance of experienced faculty members.

Principal Nancy Benfer, a Mount grad from the class of ’04, is just one example of the strong connection between the college and Bishop Dunn. Many graduates from Mount Saint Mary College go on to work at Bishop Dunn, contributing to its success and mission of providing a well-rounded education to its students. Through initiatives like this science event, both institutions are able to work together to inspire and educate the next generation of scholars and scientists.
