Experimental practices concerning the physics education are well-established methodologies which support the development of scientific thinking skills in the university environment. In the last years this subject is increasingly recurring for researches at many grade levels. In order to provide an initial contact of the students with practical issues, relating the fundamentals concepts studied during the basic cycle of Engineering graduation - which covers the first two years of the course - the development of a specific project is proposed each semester by means of the Supervised Practical Activities (SPA or APS in Portuguese).The aim of these activities is to offer an environment for the student cognitive evolution, by proposing legitimate challenges , focusing on teamwork as a key factor for its development. In the present work the activities performed with the undergraduate students of Universidade Paulista (São Paulo/Brazil) during the last years are shown.

Keywords - Engineering education, practical activities, building scientific knowledge.
