Science teaching integrated with ICT is usually used in science classroom to gain more understanding in the abstract concepts for the students. However, previous studies had found that   preservice science teachers had difficulties about integrating ICT in their teaching. The purpose of this study was to develop a training model for pre-service science teachers for enhancing their TPACK. The training workshop program was a 32-hours program and driven by I2CARE model which consisted  of  6 steps : Introduction (I) , Comprehension (C) , Challenging & Designing (CD) , Analysis (A) ,  Reflection (R)  and Evaluation (E). The participants of this study were 10 pre-service science teachers. The instruments were open-ended questions , lesson plan - design assessment ,  written-refletion , and  focus group interview.  Quantitative data were analyzed by using the percentages, mean and standard deviation and qualitative data were analyzed by using content analysis. Findings showed that pre-service science teachers had more understandings of TPACK. They could choose appropriately ICT with particular science topic (TCK). They could choose appropriately ICT with particular science teaching approach (TPK). Moreover, they could choose appropriately ICT with particular science teaching approach with particular science topic  (TPACK).
