The main difficulties that students of engineering careers in the Universidad de Oriente have in the practices of laboratory in Physics I, and their possible causes are analyzed. It is done by a methodology using of the “socratic dialogue”, sustained in the Johnson-Laird’s theory of mental model with the objective of transforming the mental models of the students in conceptual models.
