In Leo’s Creativity Studio, the possibilities are as vast as your imagination. Our makerspace experience allows students and teachers to build, create, and experiment. Special themed projects change throughout the year and include: experimenting with circuitry, figuring out the perfect balance between air and materials, and discovering the cause-and-effect relationships between simple objects.
Da Vinci Science Center exhibits inspire students to be interested in the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by presenting them informally, playfully, and in ways that relate to their popular interests.
