About this event

How do we learn new skills, percept changes? New phenomena – ideas, technologies, scientific discoveries, professions, and culture phenomena enter our life through the experience. To test by experience means to involve changes into your life.
Young XX century brought us Russian avant-garde, which altered the world of art and let reconsider values, a life mode, and the place of human in the world. Thus testing new things became socially acceptable and safe.
Experience, as a special activity of testing a researcher’s hypothesis, appeared in the scientific experiment, which combined natural science test and invention activity. To test by experience purported to check something for relation to the Truth.
At the beginning of XXI century Tomsk tries to attract people, who gained the advanced experience. How do we learn new skills today, experiment and test – in one word, how do we gain experience? What kind of experience is important for us – intellectual, sensual, physical? Let’s pay a special attention to the answering the above-mentioned questions in the speeches of TEDxYouth@Tomsk – the avant-garde of XXI century participants.
