1.1 Background to the Study
Curriculum is a dynamic programme that is expected to address the changing needs and aspirations of any society (Igwebuike, 2008). Nigerian policy-makers and educators recognize the role of science and technology in the achievement of education for all and national development in the present millennium. This has informed an evaluation process that led to the development of the nine-year basic science and technology curriculum of the universal basic education. The curriculum was implemented in September 2008 in primary one in Nigeria. This study is an investigation into the level of implementation of the basic science and technology curriculum at the junior secondary school level.
