0. For students who are considering taking this course

This course is designed to (1) focus on things around us that we do not usually pay attention to in daily life, (2) shift from awareness to intellectual excitement, (3) understand life science terms and techniques such as DNA and PCR that often appear in the news. The lectures progress vertically and horizontally, with the primary objective of scientific thinking and criticism.

Specifically, the course will take life science matters, phenomena, and current news as its starting point and proceed through ㊁ experience via works and experiments, ㋭ lectures, ㋬ problem-finding and solving, ㋣ and special guest lectures on the latest developments in the field of life science. ㋠ In addition, participants will do group work and presentations. This seminar is a “Salon” in Komaba, and we hope you will enjoy it and talk casually with the faculty and your fellow participants.

The primary objective of this course is

  • to explore the universality and originality of natural sciences, a discipline that has been given a classification

Still, at the same time, we encourage participants to “jump around freely” without fear in fields such as engineering, humanities, arts, music, history, culture, mathematical sciences, and current news that crosses traditional boundaries. We aim to pursue a “Komaba style” liberal arts education and develop an environment/classroom/teaching material. We hope students who want to experience the fun of “free-flying” practice through this seminar will join us.

In addition, we hope that participants will accept that the world is diverse and confirm our identities from various viewpoints and perspectives. Finally, we will experience the fun of “thinking training” through this experimental trial, unique experience, and pure natural science.

2. Guidance
