Schools & CommunityLeap Building Project - Pao_1


Partnerships with K-12 schools include student-directed project building residencies, community education classes, field trips and family nights.


More in-depth topics and projects are available for all learners. Contact us to ask about focused studies or one-on-one learning opportunities.

Field Trips

Our workshop has hundreds of tools and a warehouse of building materials. Schedule a field trip to develop technical skills, explore the design/build process, make sculptures and have fun.

Community Education

Our informal learning complements traditional scholastic studies. Contact us to develop a project complementary to STE(A)M or any academic study.

Family Nights

Contact us to design the perfect project building activity for your next family event. Engineering, art, math, experiments and games can be connected to a theme or be separate activity areas.

Community Building


Make books come alive by adding an engineering, art or technology learning experience. Schedule a class, workshop or event for children, teens, adults or families at your library.

Workshops and Field Trips

We bring classes to parks, community centers and other institutions. Those same groups plus scouts and childcare groups are encouraged to visit our workshops.

Leonardo’s Basement organizes the annual Minneapolis/St. Paul Mini Maker Faire in May.
