Amy Adams, President - Parent University
I am the President and CEO of Parent University Network, which is a family-owned and operated consulting service based out of Northern Virginia. Our roots are in child-care and elementary education and we took our experience with parents, staff and children to create a worldwide educational service that works or lives with children from infancy to pre-teen.
We are a community service, offering cutting edge specialized services with proven success to parents, grandparents, guardians, educators, childcare facilities, STEM and STEAM leaders, Boy Scouts of America, sports coaches and teachers nationally and worldwide. The goal of Parent University is to support the growth and development of anyone working with children. We tailor many different seminars to a variety of groups, such as hospital employees, gyms, mothers clubs, National Chain Childcare Centers, day care centers, parent-teacher organizations and churches at times that are most convenient to each organization.
It is natural for us to have an abiding interest in STEM because it pervades every aspect of our lives and affects what is closest and dearest to us –our children. STEM Education is vital to the future of our children, our region and our country. Because STEM is everywhere it shapes our everyday experiences. We only have to look around to see what improvements to our lives and homes have been engineered in the last decade alone. In the increasingly technological age in which they are living, STEM is their future and holds their best career options.
Our goal is to help children learn and grow. We hope that by sponsoring these STEM events we will truly be making a difference in our communities. We are here to empower young children and teens to persevere and help them gain confidence that they can do anything. www.parentuniversity.net
