Technological development is ever-evolving in all areas of life, its impact on the education field has emerged, and science is part of learning that teachers struggle with in their teaching methods. This study aimed to explore the effects of using a 3D virtual environment in learning science at the basic education stage and students’ attitudes towards their use. A quasi-experimental design was used in this study. A total of 99 students participated in the study, divided into two groups: an experimental group (n=50) and a control group (n=49). In this study, an achievement test and questionnaire were used as study tools after validating their validity and reliability. The data were analyzed using SPSS. Results showed that in the experimental groups that were taught science topics in 3D virtual environments, there were statistically significant differences compared to the control groups. In addition, students in the experimental group who were learning the topics in science textbooks in a 3D virtual environment showed positive attitudes toward it. The study recommends the use of 3D virtual environments in science education.
