This study focuses on investigating the effect of practical skills on students' thinking and hands-on performance when working on a technology project. Also, this study tries to verify the effect of students' thinking and hands-on performance by enhancing their practical skills. Sixty-one 8th graders were investigated in this study. A nonequivalent control group design of quasi-experimental design was conducted, and following conclusions were made: (1) Enhancing students' practical skill did not necessarily promote their thinking performance. It was suggested that the conceptual knowledge was needed to further improve their thinking ability. (2) Enhancing students' practical skill had little effect on their practical performance. It was suggested that the conceptual knowledge was needed to further improve their practical performance. (3) Students with good thinking and practical ability did not necessarily fully understand the technology system, only if qualitative knowledge in technology was used.
