Science literacy is very important to be prepared for the younger generation in order to solve problems in life. STEM integrated guided inquiry is a strategy that can be done to improve scientific literacy in the learning process. We examine the effect of the integrated STEM guided inquiry model on students' scientific literacy abilities. A total of 66 middle school students participated in this study. Data were collected from one question instrument and then analyzed by normality test (chi square), homogeneity test for variance and hypotesis test (t-test). STEM integrated guided inquiry model has a significant effect with significance level 1\% ($\alpha  $= 0,99) is obtained t$ _{\text{count}} $ 7,9 $ > $ t$_ {\text{table}} $ 2,66. Based on the result obtained that STEM integrated guided inquiry model that can improve literacy science skills compared to conventional model
