Neil Lothe is a sophomore at IA and a Life Scout at Troop 1857 in Alpharetta, GA. He completed his Eagle Project towards completing the requirements for the Eagle Rank. His project involved building two Digital Sensory Tables for seniors with memory issues such as Dementia. He donated those to The Mansions at Alpharetta Assisted Living and Memory Care facility located on Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta. He led a group of volunteers of fellow scouts, friends, and family members to build these Digital Sensory Tables.
A ‘Digital Sensory Table’ is essentially a large screen Android tablet encased within a wooden frame and mounted on a mobile stand that has specialized apps installed that provide sensory stimulation for people with Dementia and other memory issues.
After completing this requirement, Neil is getting closer to achieving the Eagle Rank.
