Professional development program


Dodge teachers, Bob Welch and Debbi Thompson, are participating in the “Get Energized!” professional development program offered by the Museum of Science and Industry. The program is year-long, and consists of a series of all day workshops. The content focus of the program is physical science. During each workshop, teachers are introduced to hands-on, inquiry-based science activities to bring back with them to their own classrooms. The program provides all the materials needed for students to complete the activities. A highlight of the program is a ‘no cost’ Learning Lab field trip for Dodge students at the Museum of Science and Industry.
