REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOOTBALL ACADEMY

STEM EDUCATION

INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES

 

The Stem- consist of the athlete acquiring the basic knowledge of Four specific disciplines related to the sport of football.

1.Safety- Sports Engineering

2.Conditioning-Sports Mathematics

3.Diet -Sports Technology

4. Strength Training-Sports Science

 

 

Interdisciplinary Studies-The combination of two or more disciplines, taught where students are given subject in terms of multiple traditional disciplines.

Connecting and integrating multiple academic schools of thought, professions, or technologies with their specific perspectives into a common task.

 

A sports engineer should not be confused with a sports scientist. The main difference is a sports scientist is interested with what is going on inside an athlete, while a sports engineer is concerned with how an athlete interacts with external factors.

 

Sports engineering is a very broad career field that is concerned with the research and development of technologies in the industry, but getting an education directly related to this niche field can be difficult.

 

While there are no specific sports engineering undergraduate degree programs in the U.S., mechanical, biomedical, manufacturing, industrial and computer engineering are all potential starting points for sports engineering careers, since they all focus on the over-arching concept of enhancing performance and developing new products.

 

While sports engineering is not a well- known field among pre-college students, professional societies are working to change that. Study programs in sports engineering and technology at either the undergraduate or graduate level are now offered at a number of universities.

 

Mathematics in Sports

           Although not always realized, mathematics plays a very important role

 

Mathematics is very prevalent in sports, from the most complex of formulas to the simplest ideas such as betting.

 

Sports technology:

Applying technology to sports such as tennis, cricket, AFL, and soccer to monitor the monitor of athletes with the purpose of developing training aids to improve performance.

iPhone technology. This is a great technology since it is ubiquitous, and well understood by the general public. It has some useful sensors to monitor and assess human movement.

 

  •  

Applying technology to monitor the ECG with the aim to assist cardiologists to determine and monitor abnormalities. This technology has great promise for remote health.

Applying leading edge technology to help solve issues in EEG analysis.

 

 

  •  

Creating computing infrastructure to warehouse multichannel, long duration sports data. The avalanche of data now available from multi-sensor devices has led to the need to store, quickly retrieve, analyze, and visualize data.

 

 

 

 

Sports scientist is interested with what is going on inside an athlete.

 

Sports science (also sports and exercise science, sports medicine or exercise physiology) is a discipline that studies how the healthy human body works during exercise, and how sport and physical activity promote health and performance from cellular to whole body perspectives.

 

The study of sports science traditionally incorporates areas of physiology (exercise physiology), psychology (sport psychology), anatomy, biomechanics, biochemistry and biokinetics.

 

Sports scientists and performance consultants are growing in demand and employment numbers, with the ever-increasing focus within the sporting world on achieving the best results possible. Through the study of science and sport, researchers have developed a greater understanding on how the human body reacts to exercise, training, different environments and many other stimuli.
