Homecoming & Family Weekend 2019
Learning and FUN go together!
Dock's annual Homecoming & Family Weekend isn't just a great time for alumni to gather, it's a community-wide celebration of the joy of learning.
Learning about chemistry was never more fun than during the Franklin Institute Roadshow (left). Kids take their turn learning to navigate a Vex robot during the Robotics station (above). Both events were part of STEM Fest, a Homecoming celebration of hands-on learning.
