“Independent. Engaged. Connected.”Coming early Fall 2012Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of life [[#|for seniors]] by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities? In the 2012 SENIOR SOLUTIONSSM Challenge, over 200,000 children ages 9 to16* from more than 60 countries will explore the topic of aging and how it may affect a person’s ability to maintain his or her lifestyle – solving issues like getting around, keeping in touch, or staying fit. Teams will research obstacles and then suggest ways to improve the quality of life for the seniors affected. Teams will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® robot to solve a set of missions on an obstacle course. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.

*9-14 in the US, Canada, and Mexico

The Problem

When seniors try to slip their foot into their shoe the tongue gets in the way of the process of putting your foot in. If you are a senior you know that you have a very hard time bending over to put on your shoe. We went to The Fountains [[#|Senior Living]] Home and we found out that bending down was very hard and a lot of people fell. With our further knowledge we chose the Tongue Lift.
