Children 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 Workshops

Design and build engineering, art, and technology projects that most often go home with you but are sometimes epic group projects. Over 125 week long (M-F) half- and full-day summer workshops for ages 6-17 are offered all summer. We also provide Friday-only workshops.
