Publisher Description:

A science biography that examines the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci and offers kids the opportunity to make their own designs and inventions with hands-on activities!

Leonardo da Vinci is famous for the Mona Lisa and other works of art. His other claim to fame? Being an inventor!

During the Renaissance, inventors and other creative thinkers designed and constructed many new things. It was a time of discovery, wonder, and exploration. And one of the people on the forefront of that awakening was Leonardo da Vinci. In The Science and Technology of Leonardo da Vinci, readers ages 9 through 12 explore the life of one of the world’s most amazing minds. They discover what it might have been like to live in the fourteenth century, when work, entertainment, medicine, travel, and food were very different. They ponder the same kinds of questions that drove Leonardo to tinker and experiment endlessly, even while creating artwork that influenced entire generations who came after him. What is the inside of the body like? How might humans fly? How can geometry be used to design stronger buildings?

His dedication to invention, experimentation, and art, along with his insatiable curiosity, gave the world new insight into anatomy, botany, engineering, and much more. Kids gain these same insights through hands-on STEM activities, essential questions, text-to-world connections, and links to online resources, including primary sources, that encourage readers to take a closer look at the world of the Renaissance.



Category Description for Science & Technology Series:

Biographies are so valuable for students to read. Learning about a historical figures early life helps readers more fully understand what they learn about them later on. When it comes to scientists, background knowledge provides context for their science careers. What were they like as a student? Were there many failures before their successes? What were their habits and methods? What did others think of them during their lifetime? Were they married with children? A reader may find a connection that sparks something within them! Perhaps in reading about Da Vinci a student starts to regularly journal their ideas. These books flow well and are very readable. The text is interesting, and the graphics are varied and helpful. There are loads of photographs and illustrations in each volume. ~Sara
