This project aims to develop, test and validate a sequence of teaching and learning of Einsteinian Relativity to high school with a dual purpose in view. The first is to develop a set of objective tools for physics teachers who want to innovate their practices in the classroom by adopting a content of Modern and Contemporary Physics. The second is to develop research and knowledge to the scientific community in view the pedagogical-didactic obstacles and epistemological obstacles present in didactic relations involving the contents that we want to address.
