Classroom on Wheels (COW)  








CLASSROOM ON WHEELS is a school bus-based traveling classroom for half-day field trips throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties. It provides an in-depth look into local businesses and industry, arts and culture, education, religion, government, social services, agriculture, and history in a way that one could not accomplish on one’s own. Students gain an appreciation of what goes into creating the quality of life we enjoy. Since 1974, Classroom On Wheels students have visited or learned about more than 1,300 places and people. These popular classes have gained a huge following of loyal students who love to learn about the area via field trips and lectures. Classes are held in the fall, winter, and spring.


The bus pick-up location is at Suncoast Technical College, 4748 Beneva Road, Sarasota, FL 34233:
Park your car and meet the Classroom on Wheels bus on the Suncoast Technical College campus. Enter the campus from Proctor Road. Go to the northwest corner adjacent to Building 5 (north of Building 3-ACE Office). Park near the fence adjacent to the ball field.
