Community Outreach - Senior Center Program
Senior activities are essential for both physical and mental well-being. At Abacus Robotics, we believe that building, programming and driving robots can be learned at any age. Due to this belief, robotics building program is offered at senior centers as a community outreach activity.
Older adults can be intimidated by technology. Taking part in robot building, programming and driving will help to reduce this barrier and enable seniors to stay current with changes in technology. Abacus Robotics partners with local middle and high school students who work and partner with seniors in the robot building activities. This allows for cross-generational sharing and interaction.
