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

Mount Saint Mary College Students Guidance: Science Fun for Kids at Bishop Dunn Memorial School

Bishop Dunn Memorial School in Newburgh recently hosted a science event that provided young scholars with hands-on experiments led by Mount Saint Mary College students. The college students, under the mentorship of Jodie Fahey, an associate professor of Chemistry at the Mount, guided the children through small projects that explored various aspects of science.

The Mount has a long-standing commitment to the holistic development of children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Founded in 1883, the school focuses on academic, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical growth. During the science event, one of the highlights 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 science can be fun and exciting.

The Mount maintains a strong partnership with Bishop Dunn Memorial School through its education program. Many Mount graduates go on to work at Bishop Dunn and strengthen this bond between two educational institutions. Principal Nancy Benfer is just one example of a Mount alumnus who has returned to her alma mater to give back to her community.
