The study investigated the attitudes of in-service teachers’ towards the use of multimedia as a tool for science teaching in Junior High Schools in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The population sample consisted of 100 Junior High School (JHS) science teachers made up of 60 urban teachers and 40 rural teachers from three selected districts in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. The instrument used in collecting data was a 30-item self designed Likert type questionnaire that yielded scores on a four-point scale, validated by experts advice while its internal consistency was estimated at 0.816 using Cronbach’s alpha. Frequency count, percentages and t-test were used in the data analysis. The results indicated that some of the teachers have poor attitudes towards the use of multimedia in some of the question items as a result of their availability; others however, were in agreement that it is a good material for science teaching. The two categories of teachers requested for making them available in schools in order to fully establish the strength and weakness of such a teaching instructional tool.
