Science Learning based on “Merdeka Belajar” system in elementary school during pandemic raises new challenges for students, teachers, and parents. “Merdeka Belajar” is a program initiated by the Minister of Education which aims to create a happy learning atmosphere for them. In addition, the “Merdeka Belajar” system wants to produce better quality and not only memorize, but also has sharp analytical skills, reasoning, and comprehensive understanding in learning. Then the policy of “Merdeka Belajar” in dealing with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is to implement learning activities at home or learning distance (online). This encourages all parties to be literate, be it scientific literacy, technology literacy so that the concept of science learning can still be implemented. This study uses a qualitative approach with literature study methods. Sources of data are through the online media of national and international indexed journals. This study found a strategic method to achieve “Merdeka Belajar”, including Learning Cycle, Blended Learning, STEAM, E-Learning (Learning Management System) and ethnoscience. So learning science with technology is increasingly in tune with the independent learning system because in the process students are trained to be literate in science and technology as well as to have character/ science attitudes.
