A PLA 2020 Virtual Conference On-Demand Session

When you think of STEAM programming, does your mind jump to tweens programming robots, or do you envision seniors walking down memory lane with the help of virtual reality? This panel will help broaden your idea of both senior programming and STEAM outreach. Participants will hear about innovative senior programming, including augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) programming in memory care units, robotics programs in assisted living centers, and “reverse outreach” programs bringing in seniors for art and music programs.

Originally presented as part of the PLA 2020 Virtual Conference on February 27, 2020.

The recording of this session is closed captioned in U.S. English.

Running time: 1 hour

At the conclusion of this on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Justify the use of STEAM activities in senior programming;
  • Identify specific STEAM activities suited to the interests and needs of seniors in your community; and
  • Design and implement engaging programs to increase seniors’ engagement and understanding of STEAM topics.
