Origin of Cyber Seniors

The documentary idea Cyber Seniors was made by two 16 year old high school sisters during a school project. The two sisters showed their grandparents how to use basic technology skills and it dramatically impacted their grand parents life. Once the sisters were inspired by their epiphany they decided to make the Cyber- Seniors Program. The Cyber-Seniors Program eventually made a film with all of the footage the program collected.
