Girls build LA
G.E.M.S. is a group in the Girls Build LA program. Our goal is to assist the elderly with technology to help them stay more connected with the rest of the world.
We believe that the elderly could become separated and isolated from society. They aren't always the best at keeping up with new technology, which often leads to them being forgotten or left out of their children's, and grandchildren's, lives.
We don't think that way. Our group believes that the elderly population should be given more opportunities to connect with the world as it is right now and to stay more in touch with their family - even if they are isolated physically, family can still be contacted through technology, social media in particular.
