Abstract: Technology evolves almost everyday. Science educators must play important role in order for students to face 21st century challenges. This research is subjected to observe the mastery of 21st century skill among the standard 5 students in the process of learning Science. The method used was surveying using interviewing as the main instrument. 60 students of a school in Batu Pahat, Johor were involved as research sample. This research is focusing on 5 components of 21st century skill including digital age literacy, inventive thinking, effective communication, high productivity and spiritual aspect. Overall analysis shows that there is no significant difference among the students in their 21st century learning skills, regardless their gender.
