Abstract. This study aims to analyze senior high school students- View of Nature of Science and Technology. The participants include 25 senior high school students in one school in Bandung, Indonesia. The VNOST questionnaire consists of 8 multiple-choice items including four aspects: definitions of science and technology, epistemology of science, internal sociology of science, and external sociology of science. Students responses to the questionnaire were analyzed using frequency distribution to characterize trends in students views. The results showed that most of the students answers belonged to the Has Merit category, which was 46.5% but there were still few students who had a realistic view of 30% and 23.5% of the students answers still included the Naïve category. This study shows that generally senior high school students do not yet have an appropriate view of the nature of science and technology. This study is very important for teachers to see VNOST in science learning.
