Abstract: This work aimed at constraints in the use of Information and Communication Technology facilities in teaching and learning of Integrated Science in Secondary schools. Descriptive survey design was used. Data collected using questionnaire were analyzed using analysis of variance (ANOVA). The findings revealed that there was no adequate and relevant ICT facilities in most schools which make it impossible to incorporate ICT into teaching and learning of Integrated Science. Where they are available, they are underutilized as a result of epileptic power supply and lack of ICT staff. Based on this findings, it was recommended that the government should ensure regular power supply, train and employ more ICT staff and supply adequate and relevant ICT facilities to support schools.
