Apparently, kids  decide as early as second grade whether they like, or  think they are good at,  math and science. STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects could be difficult for lots of teenagers, and aren't always popular.  But today, our reporter Josie Fan takes you to a program where some middle school students are having  fun with numbers and equations.

Kids at Lincoln Park Middle School aren't getting suspended nearly as often as they used to.

In fact, the number of days students were suspended has dropped by more than half in just one year.

Rumors and misinformation, helped along by social media, aren't painting a true picture of the school, especially these days, says Principal Brenda Vatthauer, who's wrapping up her first year at Lincoln Park.
