Written with an inimitable combination of clarity and belief in the genius of every young reader, Leonardo’s Science Workshop models the curiosity and problem-solving that made Leonardo a genius.

As a parent, educator, and designer and author of STEAM-based educational content, curriculum, exhibits, and products for children, families, and educators, I consider Heidi Olinger’s work to be an excellent choice for the home, afterschool, or school library.

A very useful book when helping to explain science and physics concepts to youth. Vibrantly colored graphics blended with schematics will keep their attention while they read the easily understandable text. I found plenty of examples in each of the sections that could be replicated to help the learning process. I would buy this for my own grandchildren.

Great science book. Wonderful explanations with easy to follow examples and activities to do with your child. Science was always something I worried about teaching, but with tools like this one it becomes very easy!

Leonardo’s Science Workshop is a book for highly intelligent children who enjoy self-directed science projects. It would make an excellent resource for teachers looking for multidisciplinary lesson plans with an emphasis on the pure sciences and technology.
