  Abstract: The University of Juarez and the University of Texas at El Paso have developed a hybrid instruction model to combine lab activities and a tutorial-based inquiry through the use of a video. Students from the Introductory Physical Sciences Courses can construct the concept of density in the contexts of solids and liquids. Data were collected through a post-test, a pre-test and homework designed in the same context of the corresponding learning topics. Students are exposed to a 30-min video of the lab activities. This video is available for the students though the whole lab. Students have the option to watch any section of the video as many times as they need it. Results show that students' questions related to lab procedures and conceptual content are reduced. Finally, we will present the corresponding learning gains of both sets of groups, treatment and control groups.
