The Genius of Leonardo Da Vinci
Engineering

It has been more than 500 years since the passing of Leonardo da Vinci, yet his discoveries and inventions are still viewed with awe. His curiosity and imagination led him to create masterpieces that serve as wonderful teaching tools, even today. We will build and explore some of his most famous inventions, including his catapult, helicopter, tank and ornithopter. We will also guide you through the hands-on building of your own machines, using the technology of today, including hydraulics. Finally, we will learn about the life of da Vinci to see what traits guided him to his greatness and how we can understand and access those traits in ourselves. By week’s end, you will take home all of your creations as inspiration and a reminder of the great things YOU can do.
