Abstract

Promoting Real Australian Indonesian Science Education (PRAISE) is a collaboration IndonesiaAustralia pilot project. The project managed by SEAMEO QITEP in Science, in which innovative inquiry based science learning resources were developed and piloted in ten junior secondary schools in two areas namely Bandung City and West Bandung County, West Java Province, Indonesia. This project was intended to provide an effective curriculum units for running inquiry based science learning activities in schools which appropriate with local condition as well as able to generate students with high motivation and high achievement in science fields which can be expected to grow as scientists in the future. Data analysis indicated that the utilization of PRAISE curricular units improves the quality of science learning in terms of activeness of students during classes, students’ motivation to learn science, students’ daring to express their opinions during discussions, students’ collaborations, eradicating classroom discipline problems, attractiveness of learning activities as well as providing opportunity to develop students’ scientific investigations and to apply their knowledge in daily life. Utilization of PRAISE curricular units for science learning also significantly improve students’ basic inquiry skills.
