Lakewood Seniors Explore 21st Century Technology At Tri -C Westshore

The senior participants at the Lakewood Division of Aging are eagerly looking forward to an upcoming trip on Friday, September 15th, to the Westshore campus of Cuyahoga Community College.  This trip will expose attendees to a variety of cutting-edge technology in the field of medicine, and beyond.  These curious and intelligent older adults set straight the commonly held misconception that seniors are uninterested, and even afraid of modern technology. 

The Tri-C Westshore Anatomy Lab tour will include a study of the function and care of the heart.  While in the Chemistry Lab, they will participate in an experiment, comparing the reletive effect of TUMS and ROLAIDS on stomach acids.  In the Educational Technology Labs, participants will explore the features of the 3D printer, as well as the new 80" Green Board as they apply to innovative applications for holography.  The visitors will have the opportunity to use Hololenz equipment as they take part in an augmented reality experience. 

This unique opportunity is for any interested senior, aged 60 and older, although space on our vehicleis is limited.  We will be traveling to the Tri-C Westshore campus on Friday, September 15th, from 11:15 AM to 1:15 PM.  This program is free, but there is a suggested donation of $3.00 for transportation.  Interested individuals should call the Lakewood Division of Aging Activities Office at 216-529-5005 for more information.
