Girl Scouts ‘Earn Badge’ in Senior Solutions, Visit MaxiAids Products for Independent Living Farmingdale, NY Showroom



MaxiAids Products for Independent Living ( www.MaxiAids.com ), a Farmingdale-based provider of items that help seniors, the visually and hearing impaired, and those with special needs, recently hosted a group of Merrick girls who are representing the Girl Scouts of Nassau County in a contest to develop a product to assist seniors.

The team of six 8th graders, all students at Merrick Avenue Middle School, is competing in the First Lego League (FLL), Lego Robotics Program, calling themselves the ‘Merrick Masters.’ The purpose of the Girl Scouts’ involvement in FLL is that they have initiatives to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with girls at an early age in hopes to inspire future scientists, engineers, or other technical studies/professions.

MaxiAids invited the team to its showroom to see a sampling of the more than 8,000 products they stock that make people’s lives easier.

Read the full story about the girls' visit as published in Merrick Life.
