New Idaho Elementary to Spotlight Science and Math

MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) — A new elementary school named after Idaho astronaut Barbara Morgan aims to teach young children about science, technology, engineering and math.

The Idaho Statesman reports the Barbara Morgan STEM Academy will open this fall in the southwestern Idaho city of Meridian, becoming the district’s fourth science-and-math magnet school. State officials are trying to increase the number of students who go into math and science careers in Idaho.

Principal Ryan Wilhite says that rather than having teachers lecture and provide answers to students, they will expect the kids to explore and test their own theories using a student-led learning approach.
