Most kids really don't hate science. By nature they're really curious and always asking questions about that world, just like any good scientist. However, they think that it's 'boring,' because when they hear the word science, they think that they're going to have to sit and do worksheets or read a National Geographic Kids article. Both of these, of course, have their place. However, you can get them motivated and interested! If you can find something that really interests your students, say, like rocket ships, and then find a hands on activity that incorporates that interest, you'll be golden.
