This study sought to assess availability, functionality and adequacy of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) resources, and  their influence on basic science learning. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. A total sample size of 174 basic science teachers from the two Area councils (AMAC and Kuje) participated in the study. “ICT Facilities and its Influence on Basic Science  Learning Questionnaire” (IFIBSLQ) was used to collect data from public and private lower and upper schools in AMAC and Kuje Area  councils of FCT. Data obtained were analysed, using frequency, percentage, one-sample and Independent samples t-tests at 0.05 level of  significance. Findings showed that the level of availability of ICT facilities is high; functionality is poor, while adequacy is low. There is  however no significant difference in the influence of ICT on basic science learning between rural and urban areas. All hands are to be on  deck in ensuring effective usage of ICT resources for basic science learning in secondary schools.
