is an interactive adventure that embraces the spirit of Leonardo da Vinci to bring science, art, and creativity to life. 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.
Heidi is a voice for STEAM that is accessible, alive, and respects young people where they are.
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.
