Scientific citizenship for Leonardo is also about letting the next generation learn more about our know-how in a fun and exciting way. From April 12th to 14, as a partner of “Florence for Children” Leonardo presented an installation called - “Engineer Leonardo 500 - the imagination of flight” and held workshops led by our STEAM ambassadors. Five hundred children and youngsters took part in the workshops and over a thousand people visited the installation.
