BLACKFOOT â€“Â Rockets were launching, balloons were bursting and imaginationsÂ soaring last week as students at Idaho Science and Technology Charter School learned alongside teacher Chad Majeske and INL professionals.
Getting students to like math and science is important to Majeske. He says studies indicate it is in middle school that students decide if they like math and science.
"It's not about whether or not they are good at math and science," said Majeske. "If we can just get them to like it, then when it gets hard they will stick with it."
