Following the presentation, Teddy Hitchcock said he enjoyed the experience of trying to “sell” their idea for the touch screen application at the Elder Services board meeting.

For Matt Hersey, “helping to raise money for the elders so that they can get things they need” was a highlight.

“It’s really eye-opening to see that a couple of kids can make elders’ lives better,” said Jason Young.

Tomorrow, RoboStorm will join other FLL teams at a tournament at Worcester Polytechnic Institute held to showcase all these budding scientists, researchers and engineers have learned over the past several months.
