Bullock’s Budding Scientists Dig the Fossil Park
VIDEO: Rowan University Field Hockey Team Close to National Championship
Dorothy L. Bullock School Principal Rich Taibi wants all of his students to have the opportunity to explore science. (His school boasts a STEM lab as well as a school garden.) That’s why he was especially receptive to teacher Laure Budney’s idea to take all of the school’s students to the fossil park.
Budney is a second-grade teacher at Dorothy L. Bullock School in Glassboro. She collaborated with Sharon Lawrence, special assistant to the director of the Jean and Ric Edelman Fossil Park at Rowan University, to plan fossil park field trips for every “Bullock” student.
Students had fun digging for fossils and learning more about the park’s previous, prehistoric inhabitants. While children didn’t find dinosaurs, many found shark’s teeth, oyster shells, clam shells, bacterial “poop,” and rocks that are said to be more than 65 million years old! The trip just might have inspired the next generation of Glassboro scientists!

Clement and Smallwood had a combined six catches and 54 yards as well.
“Those guys are huge,” tight end Zach Ertz said. “We knew the type of players they are, that’s why no one was really fretting too much. … We’ve got a lot of confidence in those guys. Wendell hits the hole probably the hardest on the team, he’s a really explosive back, and Corey’s a really, really good football player.”
