Huntington Living Center and Seneca Falls Robotic Team Partner for Senior Solutions Project
Residents from Huntington Living Center and the Seneca Falls Robotic Team will be partner for a ““Firstâ Legoâ League Senior SolutionsSM Project”.

The Seneca Falls Robotic Team is made up of 10 students from 4th-7thgrades from the Seneca Falls School District. The club is modeled similar to an after school program, but it is run by 3-4 volunteer parents on week-day evenings.

As part of the “Senior SolutionsSM Project”, the students will identify a resident at Huntington Living Center as a partner and learn about a problem that the resident faces. The students will then create an innovative solution to the problem and share it with the resident. Examples of problems maybe recovering from an injury, keeping up with new technology, remembering certain things such as medication, staying fit and communicating with family, friends, doctors and others.

A sample of a possible solution would be the team chooses to focus on a resident who is unable to use their arm and has difficulty remembering things. The team would build a bionic arm that would include an electronic voice feature. The functional bionic arm would replace a normal arm and at the same time may have an electronic voice reminder that would be programmed into the bionic arm to remind the resident it was time for dinner.

On October 20th at 2 p.m. the Robotic Team will visit Huntington Living Center to interview residents and will return on November 3rd to share their solution with the residents. The students will enter their solution into a national competition on November 11. At the conclusion of the project, residents from Huntington Living Center will visit the team at school to see the finished working project on display.

“At Huntington Living Center we strive to make connections between our residents and students by promoting intergenerational programming. This project will not only assist with connecting and establishing relationships, but it will also help to educate and learn from one another. This is a great opportunity for our residents to share what they feel are some struggles for the elderly in life today. More importantly, our residents will have the opportunity to see and hear about the new -innovative ideas of our students and learn about today’s technology” comments Debbie Lockett, Assistant Administrator, Huntington Living Center.
