Considering the difficulties encountered by students in the disciplines of exact sciences, specifically physics, it is noticed that learning content by students is apparently inefficient with mechanical lessons in which students fail to see its importance in their lives, thus making them increasingly uninteresting and setting off on a low income school. The aim of this project is to propose a methodology for effective teaching by scientific theater in which the historical aspects, conceptual and practical belong to this area of knowledge can be presented to learners in a more attractive way, thus encouraging the learning of science by students. The project was developed with students who were in their first year of High school, they staged the play: PHYSICS - THE QUEEN OF SCRAP METAL, in which the results show the effectiveness of this innovative method, with the possibility of physics classes be more enjoyable, relaxed, dynamic and better learning opportunities for students.
