SPORT MOVEMENTS, A MOTIVATING THEME FOR TEENAGERS IN A FIRST APPROACH TO ENGINEERING
Keywords: sciences teaching, sport analysis, biomechanics
AbstractSport biomechanics is a perfect representation of what is a transdisciplinary discipline. This discipline makes indeed use of knowledge in mathematics, physics, biology, and of course, sports. This transdisciplinary nature has pros and cons in terms of education: Pros because sport movement analysis can motivate students or pupils and make them unconsciously use concepts and theory from other disciplines; cons because lacks in some disciplines -typically mathematics- can provoke a mental block in students. In a first part of this applied session, a special education program developed in order to cultivate the taste of teenagers for sciences through the analysis of their own sport movement will be presented.
