About: Our project shows what may have been going on in da Vinci’s mind. Some interesting things about da Vinci are that he didn’t believe in war and was a vegetarian. Da Vinci’s mind must have been full of his ideas. He designed inventions for war for some of his patrons. Science was also of great interest to him so he wrote about how the body works and sketched anatomy. He also included his observations about nature and art in his journals. Da Vinci was a person who liked to entertain many different ideas.

About: Leonardo da Vinci had many great ideas and inventions. Our project depicts the inside of Leonardo da Vinci’s mind. Although flight had not yet been invented it was constantly on his mind. His dream was to create a device that would keep someone in the air after jumping out of a plane. This is why Leonardo da Vinci created the parachute. In addition to his interest in flight, he was also very interested in the way the clock worked. Leonardo wanted to know how it worked and how to make it better. Therefore, he discovered that gears would make the clock work better and be more efficient. Leonardo loved studying nature. He studied things such as trees, plants and animals. His interest in things was so great that he was always trying to learn more about them and breaking them down. In conclusion, Leonardo had many thoughts and ideas that helped the world advance.
