Great Minds: Leonardo da Vinci


The Renaissance gave us so much: Art, Architecture, Literature and even political ideas from the pen of Machiavelli, for example.

We still see the effects of all these today. Da Vinci and Michelangelo are the standout figures of this era. Much happened in the city of Florence.
Here’s more about Leonardo:

Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most diversely talented individuals of all time. His "unquenchable curiosity" led him to make discoveries and inventions that were beyond his time, not to mention his numerous artistic masterpieces.

Today on SciShow, Hank takes us into the mind of this Renaissance Man and explores some of his many contributions to the world.
