Dickson received the 2013 Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children's Tylenol National Child Care Teacher Award for her project, and, to implement the science program, she will get $1,000 on April 11 at a special ceremony at Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia, Penn. She hopes to spark the interest of her students to learn more about the world around them.
