Abstract
Inquiry-based learning (IBL) is based on students` enquire of different situations and formulate relating questions. Experi-mental activity from real-life chemistry using school-measuring equipment con-taining spectrometer connected to com-puter was piloted with 25 in-service teachers attending course of professional development in chemistry. Sufficient computer literacy was assumed for the target group. Spectra of known colourings were compared to spectral characteristics of chosen samples from usual food. This laboratory activity should lead to development of science competences and willingness of teachers to deal with tables and graphs. Interviews with participating teachers showed their higher self-efficacy in implementing IBL with support of ICT in their teaching.
