    Who says science fairs are just for the kids? For weeks, Camarillo seniors have been running experiments and preparing their findings to be displayed in the first ever AlmaVia of Camarillo Senior Science Fair competition.

    AlmaVia of Camarillo executive director Matthew Hathway congratulates Jerry Brown in winning second place in the first Senior Science Fair competition.

    On April 13, more than 100 people attended the event hosted at the Ventura County assisted living community. The competition targeted residents 65 years and older.  The event, which was open to the public, was a great intergenerational opportunity as seniors and children from the Camarillo area connected with one another.

    AlmaVia of Camarillo believes in the importance of continuing education for seniors, which led to this unique event. Research shows learning activities, like this science fair, can help delay symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and ultimately preserve people’s quality of life.

    The projects ranged from The Health Benefits of the Sun to the production of a portable Wii™ Bowling Station. Judges included Camarillo Mayor Kevin Kildee and Elder Care President and CEO Adriene Iverson.

    Shirley Randall won first place in the competition for her display on the Five Basic Taste Areas of the Tongue. Jerry Brown won second place and Merle Power won third.
