Adopting mobile augmented reality (AR) technology has expanded education in various ways. It can integrate into the learning management process and help change the perspective about education, including activities in the laboratory. The nature of electric circuits was abstract. Because these occurrences occur inside the wires, seeing what happens when electrons flow across the circuit is impossible. In addition, this content can relate to daily life; short circuits cannot allow students to do hands-on practice. This research aimed to develop an AR app to visualize series circuits and parallel circuits and evaluate the level of user experience toward augmented reality for science learning. The participants were 28 sixth-grade students in the northeastern region of Thailand. The research methodology was a pre-experimental design involving a single-group posttest-only design. The AR app is designed using misconceptions and provided according to learning standards and indicators of the national curriculum. In addition, AR apps can visualize dynamic results inside the electric wires, such as current flow and electron movement. Before interacting with the AR app, the students got an overview of AR information for 20 minutes. Then, they did a mission through the AR app for 120 minutes. Lastly, they expressed their opinions on their experience with the AR app through the Use Experience Questionnaire (UEQ) for 10 minutes. The findings found that attractiveness, dependability, and novelty dimensions rated at an “excellent” level. In addition, perspicuity and stimulation were above average, demonstrating that our AR app performed well and received favorable responses.
