Students learn better with various teaching strategies, relate to contextual way and involvement of technology. Low interest among students caused by students’ perception toward Physics and conventional teaching approach. Besides, laboratory malfunctions and destructible apparatus lead to less number of experiments that can be carried out by the students. Students’ low achievement in Physics reflect low understanding in concepts and experiments should be able to engage the students’ interest in Physics. There fore, Mobile Computer - based Physics Laboratory (MCPL) was implemented to 105 form four students in Kluang and Kota Tinggi. A survey was carried out using The Instrument to Measure Students’ Perception toward MCPL (IMP-MCPL) which consisted 18 items. The instrument was administered to the students after six weeks of MCPL intervention. Interview were carried out and data triangulation was analyzed to know the students’ perception in depth. The MCPL gave positive impact to students’ learning, experimenting skills, grow ideas and interact with other students in learning process. As a conclusions, MCPL is a way that can be implemented at any place and convenient to teaching and learning.
