Suncoast Remake Learning Days 2024 (SRLD 2024), a regional festival that is part of Remake Learning Days, the largest international learning festival globally, wrapped its 15-day run on Saturday, May 4. More than 36,500 Suncoast residents of all ages participated in at least one of the 304 interactive learning events held in Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee and Sarasota counties from April 20 - May 4. The events were conceived and produced by 277 community organizations that partnered with Suncoast Remake Learning Days for the third and largest iteration to date. The festival expanded from 10 to 15 days in 2024 to include a third Saturday due to its popularity, enabling kids and families additional time to participate.  Suncoast Remake Learning Days is presented locally by the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading. SRLD 2024 events were held at museums, libraries, schools, community centers, and other local venues. Events were organized by six learning themes: Arts, Maker,Outdoor Learning, Science, Technology, and Youth Voice. All of the learning events were designed to be accessible, open to the public, appropriate for any age, and free. The inspiration for Suncoast Remake Learning Days is a mounting body of research indicating shared community exploration and learning improves students’ academic performance and social skills, exposing them to a world of opportunities, interests, and life-changing experiences.  The Patterson Foundation supports the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading at the national level and in the Suncoast region.
