Abstract

Education in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 requires students to understand how they can use technology and connect knowledge with the real world. This study aimed to investigate the influence of implementing discovery learning supported by the Solar System Scope application on students’ curiosity. The method used is a weak experiment. The one group pre-test post-test is used in this research as a research design. Participants were 31 7th grade students at one Junior High School in Bandung, Indonesia. The result of students’ curiosity after implementing the treatment enhanced with N-Gain 0.38 which categorized as medium. The treatment also enhances the students in the very good category of 54.83% with the highest improvement in science and embrace aspects. Based on these results showed that discovery learning supported by Solar System Scope application can be an alternative learning tool to enhance students’ curiosity.
