The use of technology in science education is known to enhance student learning. However, in Japan, the effectiveness of using sensors and data-loggers was not very much explored. This study examines how the use of temperature sensors and data–loggers enhances student conceptual understanding of super cooling phenomena of water. A science lesson was developed and implemented in a 7^<th> grade class (N=40). Students’ work sheets and reflection sheets were collected as data. The analysis of data shows that the real-time measurement of the water temperature and the automatic graphing capability of the data-logger help students grasp the phenomena on site. The situation helps student undergo a conceptual change. Moreover, more group discussion happened and the level of student interest was high during the lesson. Extensions of the research such as to include a long-term effect of the use of technology were discussed.
