Dr. Blodgett greatly enjoys teaching the experimental side of physics at all levels, from introductory labs through advanced laboratory. He is very interested in learning more about how students learn physics, with the goal of constantly reexamining and improving how our own introductory courses are taught.
He served on the National SPS Council for several years as the Zone Councilor for Zone 9, and he recently served two second consecutive terms as President of SPS. For several years he served as the chair of a committee overseeing the UWRF Broad Field Science Programs (now chaired by Dr. Diane Bennett).
