ABSTRACT

         The study investigated the problems and prospect of Integrated Science as a basis for studying science at Senior Secondary School level in Moro Local Government Area. Data were collected for 200 purposely selected science teachers from the schools. Data collected were analyzed using frequency count, percentage t-test and ANOVA.

         The results indicate that even there is a good prospect of using Integrated Science for science; it is bedevilled with many problems which could limit the chance of future scientists. On the comparison, there were no significant differences in the N.C.E., graduates professional teachers and non – professional teachers’ perception of problems and prospects of science for studying science at SSS level. However, significant differences were observed on the basis of experienced and less experienced teachers. Based on this outcome, it is recommended that professional science teachers and science equipments should be provided to all laboratories in schools.
