The Leonardo da Vinci Days

Join the global celebration of the 500th death anniversary of Renaissance genius, Leonardo da Vinci. Our namesake has inspired our mission to encourage exploration of science, technology, engineering and art among people of all ages and backgrounds. At the core of what Leonardo da Vinci represents to the world, is the idea that curiosity is the spark of genius. Let your spark start by asking yourself to view the world as he did and join us for a weekend of special events dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci.
