Children between the ages 6+ find informal and playful environments at Leonardo’s Basement where curiosity, imagination and experimentation are encouraged; where creativity goes hand-in-hand with problem solving; where taking risks is a valued tool for learning and developing self-confidence and where personal responsibility is a central element to communication and teamwork.

Summer and After School Workshops

Design and build engineering, art and technology projects that most often go home with you but are sometimes epic group projects.  See a sample of summer 2016 workshops here Registration for Summer 2017 workshops will open January 2017


Leonardo’s Basement provides oodles of LEGO offerings: create cities, space or pirate ships, build robots, simple or complicated machines; tell stories, make stop motion animation videos or even build with your parents!

Daytime classes, workshops, Saturday Builds and field trips for ages 6-17 are offered during the school year.
