The main purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of science fiction movies on prospective science teachers’ learning some science concepts. In addition to this goal, it was also examined as a sub-objective whether the science fiction movies lead to misconceptions in prospective science teachers. For this purpose, the question of “what is the effect of science fiction movies on prospective science teachers’ learning science concepts?“ was asked. In the study, a “science fiction movie watching event” was organised for three three weeks with 20 prospective science teachers. Science fiction movies including science concepts related to earth science, genetics and astrophysics were watched. At the “science fiction movie watching event” on the first week the movie Dante’s Peak about earth science, on the second week the movie Gattaca about genetics and on the third week the movie Contact about astrophysics were watced by study group of prospective science teachers. In order to find answers to the main question of the study, “one group pretest-posttest quasi-experimental design” was used as quantitative research method. In order to assess the effect of science fiction movies on the learning of science concepts, three tests, called concept tests, were developed by the researcher as the data collection tool. The data were collected by applying this concept tests as pretest-posttest. In the study, quantitative and qualitative data were collected together and analyzes were done separately. In the interpretation of the data, the findings were combined and interpreted. After examining the findings obtained from the qualitative and quantitative data, it was concluded that prospective science teachers learned new science concepts with the effect of science fiction movies and updated their current knowledge. At the same time, it was determined that some prospective science teachers made misconceptions with the effect of science fiction movies.
