Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance polymath who had a keen interest in invention, architecture, science, and engineering. Over the centuries, many manuscripts left from Da Vinci have been found; some of which have been invented, but others were not possible at that time, thus, he left these manuscripts and hoped that people could improve them to create something better in the future. Based on those manuscripts, this DIY kit allows us to recreate da Vinci’s vision and learn about the different parts and principles of motion involved in its operation.
The Flying Machine was designed to be controlled by a man lying horizontally using his arms and legs to move the wings. Although it never became practical, the Flying Machine was invented in the 15th century by Leonardo da Vinci. With this easy to assemble plastic kit, you can build your very own flying machine, inspired by da Vinci’s designs.
A brilliant gift set for a young, excited and inquisitive mind. Ideal to foster curiosity and encourage scientific learning on rainy days and a fantastic school holiday activity.
Recommended for ages 14 and above.
