The Mount's biology lab manager, Mary Orloff, handles science experiments all day with her job. But usually her students are much older than the students she worked with at Wilson Elementary School as she took her "I Love Science" talk to the school. 

Orloff and Dr. Tracy McDonough of the psychology department presented the program to Mrs. Francus' third grade classes. Orloff set up five stations, including zoology, botany, and microbiology. Kids had the opportunity to see specimens and get an interactive look at science.
