The reform introduced in the Spanish Education System in the field of Secondary Education aims to achieve high quality high school studies. This will result in a better preparation for university studies. Due to this, it becomes more and more evident and necessary the adaptation of new technologies and methodologies to the educative system. Students will properly assimilate the basic skills on science along with basic science methodology which is hard to experience without appropriate means. The present article aims to describe the development of an educational experience based on immersion of New Technologies instead of the experimentation in a physical laboratory. This article will also deal with the assimilation of basic processes of the Scientific Method, the rigor in the calculus of an experimental science such as Physics, the identification of variables involved in a natural fact and the understanding of the mathematical relationships among variables as physical explanation of a natural event by the adaptation of a pre-designed java applet.
