Abstract: This proceeding paper will report about a study that investigated how a group of elementary school teachers responded to a professional development training on Science and Technology as demonstrated in their perceived preparedness and comfort with teaching science, and their subsequent implementation with K-4 students. The results from the study may help K-4 teachers in schools and teacher education programs better understand how to prepare teachers to learn about Science and integrating technology into their practice with K-4 students accordingly.
