I was reviewing The Best Sites Where Students Can Learn About Inventions, and thought that Leonardo Da Vinci deserved his own “The Best…” list.
So, here it is — my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About Leonardo Da Vinci:
Universal Leonardo has a bunch of great online interactive experiences students can have with Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings and experiments.
Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519 is from the BBC.
It Flies! Da Vinci’s Dream Comes True is from NPR.
Leonardo da Vinci’s Resume is very intriguing.
Face to face with Leonardo da Vinci – an interactive guide is from The Guardian.
Here’s a Museum of Science interactive about him.
TED-Ed has a lesson with this next video:

Larry, thanks so much for this list! My 5th grade daughter just built a catapult (a mini one!) from one of Leonardo’s designs, and she wants to do a science project on him. This is a great place to start.
A catapult! Wow!!!!
Oh, well we just it got in in a kit (about $25) at one of those brainiac stores. It was worth it. My daughter is pretty interested in science. Thanks again for your blog!
