For 'good in' this is often followed by a school subject (for example, "I'm good in science"); 'good at' is more general and includes more general areas such as "I'm good at horseback riding" (but could also be followed by a subject).
There are also some time expressions, for example, "A hot cup of tea is really good in the morning."
There are also some food expressions, such as, "Some dill would be really good in this salmon recipe."
