While wearing MIT’s AGNES — an aging suit designed to simulate what being 80-years-old may feel like — Drey participates in a Fit and Fall class at a local community center. The class is designed for older adults, aiming to strengthen balance and mobility. We watch as Drey experiences many emotions — from frustration to empathy — and in the end realizing how resilient older adults can be.
