2011 Summer Program

Everything excited Leonardo daVinci's imagination, but nothing more than water. It runs through the background of the Mona Lisa; it fills his drawings and science. Construct his boats that sail, paddle, and submerge. Construct his siphons and squirt guns. Follow his instructions for blowing and testing bubbles. Join the class in constructing and testing canals and dams. Build a floating vessel to carry your tools and constructions. Every day, find fresh ways to play with water.
