Abstract

The research aim was to describe geoscience project design to improve students’ conception and research skill in geoscience. This research was conducted to undergraduate physics student at one of the state university of education in Bandung-Indonesia. The total subject were 34 students and divided into 6 groups. The pre-test and post-test were applied to all groups that assumed they have the same level of knowledge. The data were analyzed using independent sample test and Shapiro-Wilk sample test to know about distribution and normality of sample test. Paired t test was used to analyze significant impact of model to the learning result. Descriptive analysis conducted to assess students’ research skill through field work. It concluded that the field work had a significant impact on students’ conceptions and research skills in geoscience. These results can be demonstrated by the ability of the students in the preparation of proposal, in conducting research in the field, to compile a research report, and to make research product in the form of papers or posters. They are strongly recommended that the fieldwork is a potential strategy to improve students’ research skills and the examined as one of the necessary skills in geoscience
