Join Discovery Museum as we celebrate Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday. Born on April 15, 1452, Leonardo da Vinci was an inventor, artist, engineer, and mathematician who spent his lifetime following his curiosity and exploring a wide variety of interests. Be inspired by da Vinci’s passion for flight as you build hoop gliders and whirligigs. Create a nature journal, then take it into Discovery Woods to sketch the natural world just like da Vinci. Go on a scavenger hunt to discover some of da Vinci’s most visionary inventions, practice your hand at writing backwards like da Vinci, and more! (Some activities are weather dependent.)
