Students at Leonardo da Vinci eK-8 School stepped back to 1482 for a day of living history in celebration of the life and times of the greatest of all Renaissance men – Leonardo da Vinci.

Students dressed in period costumes, enjoyed a day filled with hands-on science and art exploration with such da Vinci inventions as a camera obscura and a giant pendulum.They also practiced backward writing (in the style of Leonardo) with quill pens.

da Vinci himself made an appearance with a queen and her court. Members of CK McClatchy High School’s band played Renaissance music throughout the day.
