Leonardo''s Science Workshopleads children on an interactive adventure through key science concepts by following the multidisciplinary approach of the Renaissance period polymath Leonardo da Vinci: experimenting, creating projects, and exploring how art intersects with science and nature. Photos of Leonardo''s own notebooks, paintings, and drawings provide visual inspiration.
<BR More than 500 years ago, Leonardo knew that the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) are all connected. The insatiably curious Leonardo examined not just the outer appearance of his art subjects, but the science that explained them. He began his studies as a painter, but his curiosity, diligence, and genius made him also a master sculptor, architect, designer, scientist, engineer, and inventor. TheLeonardo''s Workshop seriesshares this spirit ofmultidisciplinary inquirywith children throughaccessible, engaging explanationsandhands-on learning.explore some of Leonardo''s favorite subjects
, including flight, motion, technology design, perspective, and astronomy. After each topic is explained with concepts from physics, chemistry, math, and engineering, kids canexperience the principles first-handwithstep-by-step STEAM projects. They will explore:
  • The physics of flight by observing birds and experimenting with paper airplane designs
  • The science of motion by building a windup dragonfly
  • Gravitational acceleration with water balloons
  • The movement of electrons by making cereal “dance
  • Technology design by making paper and fabric using recycled material
  • Scientific perspective by drawing a 3D illusion
Insight from other great thinkers</STRONG>—such as Galileo Galilei, James Clerk Maxwell, and Sir Isaac Newton—are woven into the lessons throughout.Leonardo''s Science Workshop</I>.
