The study assessed the level of digital literacy among science teachers at the Junior Secondary School in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. The  study employed a descriptive survey design with a structured questionnaire administered to 200 Basic Science and Mathematics teachers  in Ibadan Metropolis. The result: 164 (82%) respondents had < 5 computers with digital tools, while 36 (18%) had > 5 computers with  digital tools; science teachers possess basic digital literacy skills with the highest internet usage (=3.445 and SD = 0.573); and the lowest in  basic repairs and maintenance of computers (= 1.375 and SD = 0.562). Total average in all items: = 2.961; and SD = 0.856. Science teachers’ utilisation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) skills was moderate (2.72); and the level of ICT competencies  possessed by science teachers was high (= 3.137). These findings underscore the need for equitable distribution of ICT facilities, coupled  with a call for continuous professional development programmes among science educators to ensure adept utilisation of these  resources.
