Keynote Presentation

Sara & Amy Young

Amy Young and Sara Young (a dynamic mother and daughter duo), kicked-off the “Making Things Possible: All Things Tech” Conference in 2015! Amy is a fervent supporter of her daughter Sara, an Upper School student at Cotting School who leverages technology to assist her with communication and mobility. Both Amy and Sara are wholehearted believers that technology can (and does) impact lives daily. Amy and Sara will share stories about Sara’s process growing up utilizing low-tech and high-tech solutions to help her in her daily life at home, at school, and in her community. Amy and Sara will inspire you to view the world around you in a new light and to use the power of technology, at home or in a school setting, to the best of your ability.
