At the Cranbrook Institute of Science you can find “Da Vinci Machines and Robotics” exhibit. He was one of the greatest inventors the world has ever known and now, some of his machines and ideas are on display in the D.
Most people think of Da Vinci as an artist, but he was also an engineer, inventor and much more. At the exhibit at the Cranbrook Institute they will have some of his artwork, but will focus more on his scientific achievements. The exhibit is from Italy and features a number of models recreating Da Vinci’s works.
In the exhibit, there is also a hands-on area, and one of the things you can do there is write like Leonardo Da Vinci did. He was left-handed and routinely wrote left-handed backwards, so when the writing is held up to a mirror, it could be read.
The “Da Vinci Machines and Robotics” exhibit is at the Cranbrook Institute of Science until Jan.13.
