Augmented reality in STEM education has been identified to be useful to students as indicated in many studies. However, the interest of the students towards STEM education is reportedly declining. Thus, this study supports the concept of STEM education through the development of an AR application namely AR-SiS that aims to encourage students to study Science subjects. The objective of this study is to develop and evaluate the usability AR-SiS application in teaching the solar system sub-topic. The respondents of this study consist of two categories, namely five teachers and twenty students (Year 4 to 6). The result found that both categories of respondents showed a high mean score on learnability and satisfaction toward the use of AR-SiS application. Hence, it is hoped that this study will benefit the students who are interested in STEM education and contribute the teachers a chance to diversify the teaching aids in the classroom.
