Experience genius in motion

Leonardo da Vinci was not only a great painter and sculptor but also a genius designer, architect, and engineer far ahead of his time. This summer, May 24-September 7, you can witness the genius of da Vinci first hand right here in Tyler, Texas.

“Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion” is an unprecedented interactive dual-venue exhibition soon to open at The Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College and The Discovery Science Place. The exhibition uniquely presents 40 operational, actual-size working machines, straight from the mind of da Vinci himself, and brought to reality by a modern team of scientists and artisans who used the craftsmanship that Leonardo would have used in his time.

This internationally acclaimed exhibition is of particular interest to students and young audiences, because it provides an engaging combination of education and entertainment in an experience that explores history, science, mechanics and physics, invention and innovation. The exhibit is organized into four parts, based on pre-scientific studies of the elements of nature: earth, water, air and fire. The Discovery Science Place will be hosting Earth and Fire while The Center for Earth & Space Science Education will be hosting Water and Air. Highlights include a revolving crane, a full-size armored tank (large enough for several visitors to explore inside), a working robot, and four flying machines.

We hope that you will take advantage of this special opportunity to visit “Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion” while it is here in Tyler.

Educator Resources
