During a lesson the knowledge about the structure of the human body (skeleton, muscles, nerves) and its functioning in the healthy body is repeated or introduced in a playful way. This lesson can be done independently by the teacher using the materials. Alternatively, the introduction can also be done by the coaches.
In this double lesson the students learn what it means when the interaction of the skeleton, muscles and nerves no longer works. The Flexo - an elbow exoskeleton, which was developed especially for CYBATHLON @school - is used in a supportive way. The students not only learn how an exoskeleton works, but also expand their knowledge about the interaction of muscles and nerves.
In this module, students gain alternative movement experiences by solving tasks with prosthetic legs and arms, riding in wheelchairs, or completing a course blindfolded. The courses consist of everyday tasks that show how much of a challenge they can be for people with disabilities. In addition to the coaches, the students are supervised by ambassadors who themselves have a disability. These ambassadors support the students with tips and tricks. Afterwards, they lead a discussion round, talk about their everyday lives and answer questions that one would otherwise not dare to ask.
The card game Mind Up will be given away free of charge after the workshop. It is ideal for follow-up work and addresses many topics again. It conveys knowledge about the inclusion of people with disabilities and creates a basis for discussion about ethical issues.
The students are once again confronted with the barriers of people with disabilities. In the long run, the game should help to contribute to a change in thinking and to equality.
