Summer Learning Day at the South Florida Museum
June 19, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The South Florida Museum will highlight the importance of summer learning opportunities during “Summer Learning Day” at the Museum June 19 from 10 am until 5 pm. The event, which is part of more than 300 Summer Learning Day activities serving more than 300,000 youth nationwide, will offer FREE Museum Admission to Manatee and Sarasota County students – up to age 12 (children 3 & under are always free) – along with one adult chaperone. Students will receive a “Summer Survival Booklet,” which will guide them in Museum activities, encourage reading, and provide opportunities for free return trips to the Museum!
According to the National Summer Learning Association, research shows that without access to quality learning opportunities, children can lose more than two months of achievement during the summer. Along with the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, the Museum is participating in this nationwide day of learning to help families identify resources for fun, engaging learning opportunities available right in their own backyards.
Summer Learning Day at the Museum provides a way for families and children who may not normally have the means to visit the Museum to participate and keep returning throughout the summer!
