Event Overview

Sarasota County Schools and EdExploreSRQ are pleased to present our 4th Annual EdExploreSRQ ED-stravaganza, taking place at Suncoast Technical College, 4748 South Beneva Rd in Sarasota, on Saturday, September 14, 2019!

All K-12 teachers from Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties are invited to attend this free, open house event.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to meet nearly 50 EdExploreSRQ Exploration providers and teaching artists, and to learn about all the in-school and field trip activities they have to offer for K-12 teachers and students during the 2019-2020 school year.

We’ll have sample performances and demonstrations going on throughout the day, plus lunch and snacks will be provided. District staff and representatives from Sarasota County Schools, Community Foundation of Sarasota County and Education Foundation of Sarasota County will also be on hand to discuss grant opportunities available to teachers and their schools.

Thanks to the generous support of The Patterson Foundation and Community Foundation of Sarasota County, we will be offering some great Exploration giveaways as well. These include:

  • A $750 Exploration grant for the North and South Sarasota County School with the most participants at the event.
  • A $500 EdExploreSRQ Goes Wild for Literacy grant drawing available to Sarasota County kindergarten and first grade teachers.
  • And special Exploration grant drawings for individual teachers.

Teachers do not have to be on hand during the prize drawings, but they must attend ED-stravaganza to be eligible to win!

Please join us for this FREE Open House event and discover all of the active learning opportunities available to your students during the upcoming school year!

We hope to see you there!
