Data collection techniques used observation, interview, and documentation. Miles and Huberman model were chosen as data analysis techniques which has three steps; data reduction, data display, and drawing or conclusion (verification). Based on research and data analysis during learning process activities known that there were 6 children who have been able to show interest in learning and problem solving while 45% or 5 of the 11 children required motivation and guidance in terms of expressing curiosity and solving problems when they were in science center.
