Girls Who Code Club
This national program is on a mission to close the gender gap in technology. The Leonardo is partnering with Girls Who Code to offer a FREE coding program for 3rd-5th grade girls. Classes will be held on Saturdays this spring beginning in March.
The Leonardo da Vinci Connection
While technology was not a part of Leonardo da Vinci’s daily life he certainly practiced computational thinking. Da Vinci’s codex’s were demonstrations of this thought process. He solved problems by decomposing complex machines or organisms and documented patters of nature. Da Vinci abstracted principles to guide his inventions that were stripped of any superfluous design yet still maintained his artistic touch. His computational thinking enabled him to conceive the first calculator and make improvements to the design of clocks. Today modern technology pioneers look to emulate his curiosity and creativity as they pursue innovation in the tech industry.
