The findings revealed that 30% of the science teachers ict wastes the time while only 15% finds that ICT is useful and beneficial. only 51.66% science teachers know that data can be downloaded easily. 58.33% realize that large data can be stored in a small space. 63.33% schools are providing ICT facilities. 70% finds it difficult to manage storage of vast study material. the majority of teachers (30%) using internet once a week but the modern world produces new inventions in every minute. a small percentage of teachers (11.66%) are using ICT for more than one hour daily. it shows that teachers usage is very slow than its explosion. hence, the teachers are required to come forward in this respect and should try to adopt and accommodate ICT in their professional life.
