 Abstract
The purposes of this study were to find out the effectiveness of instructional program developed utilizing various strategies to foster the students creativity in science and to analyze the recognition of the students as well as the science teachers on this program for the improvement of the program. Instructional program was consisted of student's worksheet and teacher guidebook. This program was applied to 93 7th grade students for three months. Result of this study showed that the students in experimental group got higher scores than those in the control group, which implied that creativity of the students could be promoted through specially designed program. Analysis of the change of creativity of the students by science achievement showed that the degree of promotion of creativity was higher as the achievement of the students becomes higher. Recognition on this program of the students and teachers who participated in this project revealed positive in that this program was different from the instructional program they have used and that this program would make the students eager to learn and explore the phenomena they faced. Students and teachers also indicated that shortage of instructional time, too many students in class, passive attitude of the students in class discussion, and so on as the problem they have to solve in running the program.
