Nearly a Dozen Seniors to Compete in the First
AlmaVia of Camarillo Science Fair Competition
WHO: AlmaVia of Camarillo, an assisted living community in Ventura County, will be hosting the first of its kind Science Fair competition targeting residents 65 years and older. Judges include Camarillo Mayor Kevin Kildee, who will decide which AlmaVia of Camarillo resident showcased their results the best.
WHAT: Who says science fairs are just for the kids? A group of seniors have been running experiments for weeks, and they’re now ready to present their findings in a science fair competition like you’ve ever seen before. The “scientists” are all over the age of 65. Their projects range from The Health Benefits of the Sun to the production of a portable Wii™ Bowling station. These projects will be judged by Mayor Kildee and Elder Care President and CEO Adriene Iverson. The winners will receive prizes such as an Amazon Fire 7 to an Echo Dot. AlmaVia of Camarillo is hosting the competition. The community believes in the importance of continuing education for seniors. 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 event is free and open to the public.
WHEN: Saturday, April 13, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
