The aim of this study is to determine the effect of the science teaching process, which is carried out using teaching materials prepared with augmented reality technology, on the academic achievements of middle school students and students' opinions about the augmented reality application. In the study, 61 sixth grade students studying at a middle school in Antalya in the 2019-2020 academic year were selected, and the mixed research design was used. While the control group and the experimental group that was taught science with augmented reality applications were compared in terms of achievement for the quantitative dimension of the study, the data obtained from the interviews conducted with the students from the experimental group were utilized. As a result of the study, it was revealed that AR applications contributed positively to students' science learning processes and increased the academic achievement of experimental group students, while it was also shown that AR application contributed to students' meaningful learning by making abstract subjects concretized, and at the same time increased students' interest and motivation in science lesson
