Second graders from Immaculate Conception School in Somerville, CT joined the residents of Brandywine Senior Living Center this week for a science experience that proved… your’e never too old to learn! High Touch High Tech of Conneticut franchise owner, Planet Preeti, engaged the inter-generational groups in two sessions of the popular, environmental themed program – “The Green Machine.” The Brandywine residents participated in the lessons, both to learn and to share their personal green experiences by helping the students.
An article on MyCentralJersey.com featured the unique event praising that both sessions were a stimulating experience for the residents as it was for the children. First, the children and seniors learned about creating cleaners without using harsh chemicals. This session set the level of excitement for both generations & got the entire group involved in mixing the solutions. The second session, about composting and making small choices to help the environment, was also very lively. A highlight of the programs were when the seniors contributed their feedback. When Planet Preeti asked if any of the seniors had composted, one resident said she’d done it for 40 years, and she was a great source of information.
Residents & students alike were unanimous in their enthusiasm for the program. The residents truely enjoyed the intimate interaction with the children & had a lot of fun getting hands-on with the experiments.
