I, along with Sherry Mitchell and Marc Theiler, also BBA students at UAS, are seeking to expand on a project,"iPads for Seniors," began in BA 311, Buyer Behavior, in Fall 2010, in preparation of presenting the project at the Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) regional competition in New York in April, 2011 as representatives of UAS. The iPads for Seniors project is to determine the benefit of the use of technology to improve the quality of life for the in-need group, seniors, in Alaska. The project will be continued beyond the first competition in preparation again for the Spring 2012 SIFE regional competition.
