The study investigated the effects of brainstorming in enhancing the learning outcomes of Science undergraduates in the Faculty of Education of Ekiti State University, Nigeria. Brainstorming could be an educating technique whereby ideas are generated from a group of people in an attempt to solve a problem.It could be incorporated into discussion method of science teaching. The study employed a quasi-experimental design of pretest posttest treatment and control group system. The sample size was120 undergraduates of science Education in 200level. The instruments used were ‘Science Method Achievement Test' (SMCAT) and an attitudinal scale titled ‘Attitude TowardScience Method Course' (ATSMC)which elicited information on the undergraduates'performance and attitude towards science method course (EDU 200). The two instruments were validated and tested for reliability withKuder-Richadson formula and adjudgedto be reliable, considering its values of0.84 and 0.86. It was discovered from the study that Brainstorming promotes undergraduates learning outcomes in science method courses. The researcher thus recommends the use of Brainstorming in science teachereducation.
