Responsible organization: Nazareno

Learning Objectives

    1. Through these lessons on the body and movement, an alternative method is used for a different approach to the memorization of scientific matter which is physics.
      In particular, students will be accompanied to question themselves and to discover how many possibilities our body has to be studied and to lead us to various forms of knowledge.
    2. The human body embodies many of the mysteries of physics and science and is itself the most striking example of Newton’s three laws, both for how it is composed and for everything it can do.
    3. Music and dance have the power to touch invisible as well as visible parts, for this reason, through an artistic approach students are given the opportunity to develop their creativity and their thinking by applying these latter to science: usually the two things they are separate.
      The educational value of a non-frontal lesson, where the students are the protagonists and can interact with each other and with the professor, is further enriched by the passages that this lesson completes: music, dance, cinema and literature. The student will find himself in possession of the notions relating to physics but in reality he will have learned much more, even about himself.
