We are excited to present our schedule of summer classes. Every year instructors dream up ideas for classes after watching and listening to you during the previous year. They will encourage you to design and build engineering, art and technology projects that spring from your imagination and help you learn technical and thinking skills.

Leonardo’s Basement is unlike any educational organization in the world. It is the largest makerspace for builders of all ages and one of the oldest. It is dedicated to helping students develop projects by dreaming and taking risks. To learn decision making by making decisions. To learn problem solving by solving problems. To develop technical skills using hand and power tools, computers and other technology. To value process over product. To have fun being curious, creative and industrious.

You will have considerable freedom. Along with freedom comes responsibility. We expect you to be self-directed, to respect others and to work hard. We expect that you will follow three simple rules:

Be safe, be nice and have fun.

New in 2017:

  • Giant indoor workshop and large outdoor building and play area
  • More TEEN classes
  • Two “theme” weeks, Myths and Movie Mash-Up!
  • Longer Extended Day times


We look forward to seeing you!
