The present research explores the perception of students on their use of the SPARK Science Learning System device and sensors in their science classes as they study the K to 12 science modules in the Philippines. Two groups of students were assigned to be the experimental and the control group of the study. The experimental group was exposed to the SPARK Science Learning System and the other group was not. To determine the perceptions of both groups on their science classes, the instrument, iKnow My Class Survey was utilized. Upon analysis, it has been found out that the difference in the pre-test mean and the post-test mean on the survey conducted was statistically significant with a p-value of less than 0.05 (p-value = 0.019 < 0.05). Thus, it can be concluded that the use of SPARK Science Learning System incurred better perception of science classes among students.
