Earl Blodgett

Earl D. Blodgett, Chair of Physics
President of the Society of Physics Students (SPS).

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. In addition, he is the adviser to the UWRF Chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS). He served on the National SPS Council for several years as the Zone Councilor for Zone 9, and he is presently in his second consecutive term 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. Korenic). 

He is a member of the American Association of Physics Teachers and the Acoustical Society of America.

Dr. Blodgett has his B.S. from UW-River Falls and his Ph.D. from Washington University, St. Louis, Mo.
