Artist, inventor, universal scientist, Leonardo Da Vinci was the ultimate Renaissance Man. He made important discoveries in all fields, including civil engineering, optics, hydrodynamics and anatomy.

The Great Kite inspired by Da Vinci’s direct observation of the flight of a bird, is one of his most complex flying machine designs. Da Vinci described its dimensions, shape, how it works, and what materials were required for building it. His whole notebook revolves precisely around the construction and use of the machine.

Da Vinci also imparted some “flying lessons” on how machine should be piloted. The complex piloting required the flyer to use his hands and feet to activate ropes so he could rotate, move, and open and close the wings with his own movements. Certain parts had to be reconstructed as Da Vinci’s design was not drawn in its entirety. These include: the canvas to cover the wings, some articulations and pulleys, and the tail, which Da Vinci knew was indispensable for controlling the machine.

Now you can experience a little of Da Vinci’s genius as you assemble this working replica lifted directly from the pages of his priceless and awe-inspiring Codex of Flight. Plastic pieces resembling wood snap easily together, requiring no glue or special tools. Kit even includes the pilot!

A comprehensive, full-color manual provides illustrated easy-to-follow instructions and features biographical information about Da Vinci and how his idea for the Great Kite originated. Perfect for aspiring inventors!

What is STEM?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, but what STEM education focuses on is much more than these four subjects. The focus of STEM education is how these subjects relate to each other and the real world. That means that these subjects need to be taught together and be focused on problem solving.

What are STEM Toys?
STEM toys encourage kids to develop skills in the core disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Why did we select these STEM Toys?
We chose these STEM toys because they have clear goals and encourage kids to learn STEM skills while having fun.
