Students Feedback
  • EQ & Negotiation Games
    by Prof. Dmitry Kulish

  • Science in Contemporary Art

  • What is Life?
    by Alexander Dekan
    "This course was mind-blowing for me. It was actually hard to define life. But I learned a very important lesson. Every definition is created for some purpose. And here, we exercised it a lot. It is actually a very insightful thing that I can apply in every other field of science. Soft or hard. I definitely recommend this course for the ISP-2022."
