This leads to the lower creative thinking skills of students in basic physics. This research is a Quasi Experiment research on students in the first semester of academic year 2014/2015 which amounted to 38 people. This research is expected to increase creative thinking skills as well as lecturers and students activities. Data obtained from this study is the data of creative thinking skills of students and data on the observation of activity of lecturers and students.
