Interactive methods are a good resource for making students reason and think. This is because they favor open analysis and hypotheses and develop divergent thinking in STEMC subjects. The objectives: students need to build knowledge from intersubjective relationships by studying and working autonomously; develop the ability for self-learning, and publicize trends of perspective development with new methodologies in order to allow teachers and students enrich themselves with these experiences.

Applying these methodologies the conclusion is that they are another means for teachers to improve their level of work with their students. In addition, serves to discover the attitudes of the students, their willingness to work and curiosity for research.

At the same time, students are able to work in a more practical way the contents and to acquire training and information for their later use in STEMC subjects. Although it is early for results, the ratio of students which have passed the first call exams has beed improved about 10%.
