Abstract

In this study, it is aimed at investigating Science Teachers' insights toward applicability of Marbling Art Activity (MAc) for teaching of chemical concepts in Science and Technology Course (STC). Consequently, workshop about MAc is organized in Izmir, Turkey, 2008. Data are gathered by action research technique and resolved by content analysis technique in qualitative research methods. Participants are Science Teachers (n=22). Teachers suggest that integration of art and science with MAc can be developed through educational workshops adding to STC and the lacking of integration art and science is related with national economic-technological variations, socio-cultural and religious beliefs.
