Summary/Abstract: The main aim of research is to investigate students’ perceptions toward science course before and after the Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) implementation during science lessons. The research also examines teachers’ use of inquiry based science education in their classrooms. The topic of earthquake was selected as the main focus to implement IBSE and related activities in this field. The research is a part of “Schools Study Earthquakes (SSE)” project, which is funded and supported by European Union Erasmus Plus program. The results show that IBSE supported instruction positively affected students’ perception toward science course. In addition, the educational approach of the project, IBSE, seems to be an effective method to teach earthquake phenomenon and earthquake-related subjects to students by science teachers.
