HACTIVATE! An Event to promote data science, STEM, critical thinking, problem solving, & presentation skills
Your Heritage Heroes attended two full days where city officials, data analysts and subject matter experts presented significant problems the City of Mesa is addressing. The subjects included Climate and Ecological response, Drug Addiction and Homeless, as well as educational attainment and job training.
Presented with data (including graphs, charges, normalized databases, GIS maps and other resources) which they were required to study, our Heroes utilized quantitative and qualitative analysis methods to draw conclusions and made proposals. They studied the issue of climate change as specifically experienced in the City of Mesa. They reviewed such data as numbers of 911 calls made for heat related emergencies, surface temperatures, water usage, cost of moving solid waste to landfills, R-values of selected building materials, and the use of domestic chicken farming as a way to reduce CO2 emissions in the community. The only Charter school in the competition, Heritage was well represented by the hard work and talents put to bear on the problem. I am proud of how they competed and thrilled to be a part of their accomplishments! Mr. Bear

Mrs. Heidi Udall
I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Brigham Young University and a Masters Degree in Secondary Education from Arizona State University. I love working with the amazing staff and wonderful scholars at Heritage. My favorite teaching days consist of exploring literature, writing, and learning with my students. My favorite principal days consist of observing our amazing teachers, connecting with the scholars (teenagers make me smile), and listening to our parents. When I’m not devouring a book, I spend time traveling, eating chocolate chip cookies, hiking, and playing games with my family.
