In the last years, new tools have been developed to improve and facilitate the students’ learning process. In this sense, the iPython Notebook enables an engaging and interactive form of teaching since it allows the students to visualize in an interactively way concepts that help them in improving their understanding on a topic. 

The iPython Notebook is a document format containing text, code, images, and more, that can be written, viewed, and executed in a web browser. The notebook has some important advantages over other similar documents, such as: it can be viewed, edited, and executed using only free software; it allows the use of multiple programming languages; it can be collaboratively edited by multiple users at the same time; and it is open source.

It has been proved that students are more motivated, gain more understanding, and retain knowledge better when they learn things through their own effort. Then, the aim of this work is to present the design of laboratory sessions using the iPython Notebook. The design will be carried out in a subject of the second course (Environmental Technology) of the Mechanical Engineering Degree at Defense University Center.
