The need to infuse the indigenous educational practices into the modern scientific practices to enhance science education as well as promoting entrepreneurship education in our basic science classroom cannot be underscored. This paper examines indigenous coconut oil extraction process as a way of teaching and learning separation techniques in basic science classrooms. The practical approaches involved in traditional coconut oil extraction and how it can be used to teach filtration, decantation, evaporation and sedimentation as the main separation techniques in Junior Secondary School (JSS) 3 basic science and technology was well addressed in the paper. In addition, the paper shows how improvisation through indigenous educational practices can be incorporated into the modern scientific practices to inculcate in the learners acquisition of scientific process skills required for technological advancement and sustainable development in line with the revised basic science and technology curriculum.

Keywords : Indigenous knowledge,basic science, coconut oil, extraction, separation Techniques.
