STEM Vision Statement
Huffaker, partnered with the community, will provide a collaborative culture that is centered around rigorous, evidence-based teaching in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.
Using Pringle Cans, three mirrors, beads/confetti, our Strategies students created their own Kaleidoscopes.
The students took three mirrors and formed a triangular prism with the reflected side facing inwards. They were then placed inside the pringles cans with clear plexiglass to keep the filler and the mirrors separated. We then filled them partially with a mixture of beads and confetti and glued the clear, Pringles lid to the end, and punched a small peak-hole on the bottom of the can.
When the clear side is held up to the light and the students look through the peak hole, they can then turn the can and watch the filler create various shapes and pictures as it reflects off the mirrors.

As we develop into a STEM school, classrooms complete projects throughout the year that use a variety of materials. You can help maintain our supplies.
We use consumables such as:
- Plastic bottles (clean)
- Aluminum cans (clean)
- Rubber cans
- Popsicle sticks
- Basic engineering supplies
All donations can be delivered to the office.
