Saturday Morning Science: Build a Da Vinci Bridge

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

daVinci Bridge

Leonardo da Vinci was a true polymath of the Italian Renaissance: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Among the pictures in his notebooks was a bridge designed to be quickly built or dismantled by soldiers; the beauty of the design was that the bridge depended solely on its structure for its support: no nails, glue, or rope was required to hold the pieces in place. Pieces could be assembled from available timber, or they could be carried on mules.

In this class, as a class we will work to build a daVinci Bridge together.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
