This research project is to present a working proposal for scientific initiation, since the student interest in improving his scientific knowledge acquired in the course of Electrical Engineering related to drive stepper motor and control theory. It is propose a study of the classical theories of control and a solution to physical implementation of an educational module for the actual practical test of the theories used and the proposed controllers. With the aim of facilitating access for students with instruments to study theories of control, the proposed work aims to build a didactic plan, from components purchased by the Department of Electrical Engineering, FEIS / UNESP. Where it is possible, from one ball and Plate system, adjust the position or trajectory of a ball rolling on a resistive platform and test the use of controllers designed mathematically in creating an interface of learning theories control by the users of the machine. Study and development of the power structure for applying resistive touch screens acting as a position sensor, and utilization of a microcontroller, a digital approach to perform the steps of control is also proposed.
