Description of this Book

This new series for kids eight and up looks to Leonardo da Vinci for inspiration. Leonardo had an insatiable curiosity about the world, the ability to design technologies, and the eye and hand to put his observations on paper. These STEAM skills are vital to today's students and tomorrow's innovators. Kids will delve into subjects including Art, Science, Nature, and Invention by following Leonardo's approach: experimenting, creating projects, and exploring how science, art, and nature interact. For Leonardo--as with STEAM--it's all connected.
