Heidi Buck (USA)
Heidi has been involved with FIRST since 2006 and has coached and co-coached award winning FLL and FTC teams. Her 2008/2009 FLL Climate Connection team (Lego Guards) was one of only six teams chosen (worldwide) to present their award winning project in Copenhagen at the Children’s Climate Action Summit. That project (Forest Guard – a wildfire detection system) won 1st place and is currently being implemented by SONY-Europe and the University of Nevada – Reno in Tahoe National Forest. SONY created a documentary about the team, their idea, and their journey, which was released globally.
Heidi is a professional artist and art teacher, the Tournament Director for NorCal East FLL and on the planning committee for the Placer County STEM Expo. She lives in Northern California with her husband, son and an assortment of animals – and loves to bake, kayak and fish!
Heidi also has website where she showcases her artwork.
