WebQuest is one of the effective methods of using ICT tools in the process of learning. It is an activity dedicated to making significant use of WWW resources. WebQuest idea derives from Bernie Dodgie, of San Diego State University in the USA. Since 1995, he has been developing this method, and he encourages teachers to accept and use it in their classrooms. The WebQuest activity may be a special example of the project method. There are many WebQuests in the field of Science (WebQuest Science). We have started to train teachers and students in using this method, and we would like to share our early experiences. The first group consists of teachers, who have taken in-service training course to become school ICT-coordinators. The main objective for them is to help other teachers to integrate ICT with their subjects. ICT-coordinators have designed interdisciplinary WebQuests. Com-puter science students belong to the other group. They are being prepared to teach ICT and informatics in different types of schools. Their task is to design a single-discipline WebQuest. Both groups are very interested in this new method, and work willingly on the design process. The results of their work will be demonstrated.
