Manhattan, Kan. – This summer marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo Da Vinci’s death. The Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) invites the community to visit its newest temporary exhibit Dream with Da Vinci that celebrates the accomplishments of Da Vinci throughout his lifetime.
This exhibit will be on display from Saturday, May 25 through Sunday, September 8.
Da Vinci was a dreamer and an inventor. His love for math, science and art are highlighted through this interactive, hands-on exhibit. Catapults, parachutes, and a hang glider are some of the inventions guests will find in Dream with Da Vinci. Guests will have the opportunity to add their own creativity and ideas, explore engineering and flight, and see how Da Vinci’s inventions contributed to modern technology.
This exhibit encourages a wide variety of creativity and exploration expressed through multiple STEAM concepts (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). Dream with Da Vinci was created by Curious Kids' Museum.
The FHDC will offer public programs that focus around and expand on the topics within the exhibit. Tallgrass Tour Buses, Astronomy Night and Da Vinci Day are a few of the programs that will be held throughout the duration of the exhibit.
