Index Terms: Microscience, microscale, microchem.



Abstract: Microscience approach is a new and highly innovative practical science concept that use a very small scale or microscale. It has a lot of advantages over the tradition approach which is cheap, easy to store, and easy to clean, as well as save hazardous waste disposal because uses microscience kit. The integration of practical work with the theory may have contributed to the positive response of conceptual understanding, of course Microscience approach is aiming to provide science teachers’ training. This article will discuss the implementation of microscience approach as a model for improving in-service science teachers’ training quality at Balai Diklat Keagamaan (BDK) Bandung.
