The program CYBATHLON @School has been designed to bring an understanding about the challenges faced daily by people with physical disabilities, about the causes and medical consequences of disabilities and about various robotic assistance systems.

It offers teachers various teaching tools and resources for raising awareness among their students about the different aspects of physical disabilities. As of today, two modules have been developed for sports and biology. Further subjects are planned, including mathematics, computer science, physics, etc.
