The use of augmented reality (AR) has become an opportunity to enhance teaching approach. AR is an amalgamation of multimedia information with 3D graphics, images, animations and sound to support the user’s perception. The aim of this study is to design and evaluate classroom learning through AR technique for teaching science subject to secondary school students. The proposed study integrated AR learning application in an interactive learning environment. A quasi-experimental design of the pre-test and post-test for non-randomized control group was employed for this project and the participants consisted of students of secondary schools in Thailand. The results indicates that students were satisfied at the highest level by the learning activities and acquired the target knowledge as well.
