At a recent event at Bishop Dunn Memorial School in Newburgh, young scientists had the opportunity to engage in hands-on science experiments with students from Mount Saint Mary’s College. Led by Jodie Fahey, associate professor of chemistry at the Mount, the students mentored the children in a variety of projects that explored the pH levels of household liquids and encouraged them to form their own hypotheses.

Through partnerships with organizations such as Mount Saint Mary College, Bishop Dunn provides students with unique learning opportunities that foster a love of science and discovery. The college’s close relationship with Bishop Dunn allows for collaboration and support between the two institutions. Mount Education students often work in the field at Bishop Dunn, gaining valuable experience under the guidance of experienced faculty members.

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