Abstract

This study seeks to explore the impact of Information Communication Technology (ICT) on the teaching and learning of Science Subjects in Senior Secondary Schools. The researcher used both primary and secondary data collection to gather information for analysis. A sample of 50
respondents (students) were selected from three schools in Kabba/Bunu Local Government Areas of Kogi Sate and the data was statistically analyzed using Simple Percentage method with contingency of tables and pie chart. The findings show that the non-challant attitude of the
government to adequately fund ICT canters, epileptic power supply, and lack of expertise to inculcate knowledge contributes to students' low performance in science subjects. The study further recommends that the government should ensure that schools are well equipped with
necessary teaching materials, qualified science teachers, and adequate laboratories to enhance teaching and learning of science subjects in our secondary schools.
