The study aimed at finding out the effect of an educational program based on the Web Quest on the development of creative thinking skills (originality, fluency, flexibility) amongst first secondary students at the Computer Science Subject in Jordan. The two researchers followed the semi experimental approach in this study. The study consisted of (50) students of the first secondary grade students in Madaba secondary school for Boys – one of Madaba Directorate of Education schools in the academic year 2017/2018. The school was chosen because of being close to the researchers and suitable to the study conditions. The experimental and control groups were randomly assigned to the school. The experimental group was taught in the proposed program, while the members of the control group were taught in the usual manner. In order to achieve the objective of the study, the researchers used the Torrance test for creative thinking (verbal image A). The scale was applied to the control and experimental groups. The results of the study revealed the existence of a statistically significant difference (α = 0.05) in the level of creative thinking in general and in the sub skills (originality, fluency, flexibility) in particular and for the benefit of the experimental group.
