The Art of Science
Science is about discovering how our world works. The quest to find the answers always begins with a question. Leonardo da Vinci wrote, "Learn how to see," another word for observation. Finally, exploration in experments, data collection and Discovery.
The Science of Art
Perspective drawings that began in the 14th Century have evolved into much of the technology we now use today. 3D modeling, augmented reality, virtual reality, holographic projections are just some of the inventions that came from perspective drawing.
The Science of Patterns
When you move your perspective from math being a language to math being the science of patterns, doors will open up. No longer is math a cold, abstract, unemotional field of study. It moves from black & white to COLOR!
The purpose of the engineer is to solve problems through innovation or creating a new invention.
Many of Leonardo's inventions were innovative and likewise, many of his futuristic inventions were new concepts.
The Academy of Leonardo’s Apprentice is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational foundation that was designed to collaborate with public & private educational institutions, as well as, homeschooling groups to improve the quality of STEM education. We advocate for student achievement, create programs to improve student and teacher performance and raise funds for scholarships, grants, and teacher recognition.
