Abstract

To combat early school dropout rates in Romania, the Fundatia Regala Margareta a Romaniei (FRMR) created its Generations' Centres program, which connects children to retired mentors in after- school programs. The centers are designed for underprivileged students to receive tutoring, mentorship, and companionship from retired volunteers. The FRMR aims to enhance these centers by integrating technology into their daily programs. Our team was asked to redesign a center in a way that incorporates technology into the existing program. Our project works to design a fun, safe, and technology based intergenerational learning center which will improve student engagement and involvement of retirees in their community.
