About the Leonardo's Science Workshop
Leonardo's Science Workshop leads 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. 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. The Leonardo's Workshop series shares this spirit of multidisciplinary inquiry with children through accessible, engaging explanations and hands-on learning.
This fascinating book harnesses children's innate curiosity to 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 can experience the principles first-hand with step-by-step STEAM projects. They will explore:The physics of flight by observing birds and experimenting with paper airplane designsThe science of motion by building a windup dragonflyGravitational acceleration with water balloonsThe movement of electrons by making cereal "dance"Technology design by making paper and fabric using recycled materialScientific perspective by drawing a 3D illusionInsight from other great thinkers-such as Galileo Galilei, James Clerk Maxwell, and Sir Isaac Newton-are woven into the lessons throughout.
Introduce vital STEAM skills through visually rich, hands-on learning with Leonardo's Science Workshop.
