The purpose of this study was to determine the views of science and technology teachers about the effects of 6th, 7th and 8th grade science and technology courses on students' entrepreneurship skills. In the study, phenomenographic method was used and data were collected through a semi-structured interview method with 8 questions. 5 science and technology teachers, who were working in the province of Amasya, participated in this research. The obtained data were analyzed with the NVIVO 9 software. Based on data analysis, it was concluded that teachers did not have enough knowledge about entrepreneurship concept, so that they had different understanding and practices to gain their students the entrepreneurial skills. However, it was identified that teachers having a common vision about student-centered teaching methods and techniques were effective in developing entrepreneurial skills. At the end of the study, to develop a collective mentality about entrepreneurship skills, it was recommended to the teachers that class meetings should be made more functional and more studies should be required for the dissemination of good practices.
