A visit to the GreenFields of Geneva Senior Living Community

Updated: May 20, 2018

Often, Roaring Robotics receives requests to do an outreach activity with young children. We typically accommodate these requests when we can. But sometimes, we get an interesting request. Such was the case with GreenFields of Geneva. They wanted us to do a robot demo for their senior living community - i.e., not our typical audience. The team rose to the occasion in a demonstration on May 19, 2018.

GreenFields had a special request. They had a World War II veteran who had done a lot of electronics work during the war and his subsequent career. They wanted to be able to show him something involving electronics to spark those memories of years past.

In addition to doing a personalized showing of the robot for this gentlemen, Roaring Robotics demonstrated the robot’s capabilities for the group as a whole.

While demonstrating the robot, members of our team shared information about our team, the robot, and competitions.
