Our Science for Seniors Programs includes live and zoom one-hour presentations on a wide variety of science topics. Seniors can rediscover the joy of science through Science for Seniors, an evidence-based program based on geriatric research that learning strengthens brains at every age. Through Science for Seniors, residents learn the scientific process by participating in experiments, demonstrations and fun visual based facts about their world. The program uses safe everyday household items, such as flour and salt, to explain science fact. Using a combination of visual, audio and tactile presentation of facts, it is appropriate for independent, assisted living, long term care, and memory care communities. The program has successfully demonstrated the ability to engage residents’ natural curiosity and interest in learning new information and invoke residents’ memories of past experiences, skills, and careers.
