Dodd Learns Economics on Field Trip

The family and consumer sciences department at Dodd organized a two-day field trip to the Junior Achievement Finance Park in Roslyn Heights for its students.
Nearly 100 students attended the trip, which featured in-depth lessons about economic concepts and related work in the family and consumer sciences classrooms. Students learned about the foundation needed to make intelligent financial decisions later in life as well as the importance of understanding saving, income and credit. The program culminated with a hands-on budgeting simulation at a facility, mobile unit or virtual site.
The field trip served as an educational supplement to the economic lessons students are learning at Dodd.
