MINNETONKA, Minn. (WCCO) – Science and Math can be tough for a lot of kids. Unless you’re really into it — like Mike Augustyniak, who eventually became a meteorologist.

You also have to have a good teacher, which Augustyniak took on last week at Minnetonka High School. He tackled physics, something most of us don’t think of as a fun subject.

The WCCO Morning Show helped the students make observations and why avoiding making assumptions is key in science, something Augustyniak thinks about every day.

“When I make a weather forecast I purposely don’t look at anyone else’s forecast. I don’t want their thinking to influence my thinking. If I’m right, I’m going to be right because I’m right,” says Augustyniak, “and if I’m wrong, it’s because I was wrong.”

Teacher Kim Hoehne let the morning team try a number of experiments with the kids. The only one to get each one right was Augustyniak. (We think he may have a future with science.)
