Learning About Leonardo
Our project centers on a Computer Game created by my students who presented a video that detailed the 24 game screens. As players answer scientific questions, they collect pieces of Leonardo's Bird. Answering all the questions correctly reveals a flying bird during a Solar Eclipse. The highlight of the performance in Albany was the flight of a model of Leonardo's Bird. We "programmed" the bird to fly circular paths above the audience and returned to our awaiting hands.

First of all I want to thank you for introducing me so graciously at the two workshops. You are extraordinary !
I have translated the names of birds contained in Leonardo's fables and legends.
There are mentioned in 15 stories. I will make a list of the birds' names in English, so the gentleman interested will be able to translate the unknown bird's name he is interested in. I'll eventually, translate the fable for him.

By the way, I remembered that when I sent you the E-Mail from The Leonardian Library in Vinci, they told me that they exchange E-Mail news almost every day with the Museum of Science in Milano. Probably they read the message I sent you, from Vinci. As soon I have a little more time, I will E-Mail them, Good night, Rina
