The four-week program taught participants how to use technology to gain information about fitness and nutrition, music and movies, photo editing, instant messaging and online shopping.
The program was conducted on tablets that were purchased through a grant from the Catonsville Women’s Giving Circle.
Journey Into Space
Parkville Senior Center’s “Journey Into Space” intergenerational program was also a four-part series that brought seniors and students together to learn about space and space exploration.
During the first class, senior center members and their grandchildren watched a distance learning program by NASA where they were on a virtual spaceship.
In subsequent classes, the participants built rockets, learned about the International Space Station and Newton’s Laws of Motion, and watched "Star Wars."
About the NISC Awards
The NISC Programs of Excellence winners are picked by a committee of senior center professionals. Certificates and cash awards are given to programs in seven categories and in one highlighted area related to preventing social isolation. The categories include:
- Community Development, Leadership and Intergenerational
- Cultural Programs
“Our 20 senior centers in Baltimore County are important destinations for older adults to live longer and live well, and our staff works hard to keep our programs fun and educational for our members,” said Laura Riley, Director of the Baltimore County Department of Aging.
