These are three of the seven principals of Leonardo DaVinci upon which the curators of the DaVinci Discovery Center based the programming and design of their new center in Allentown, PA. The DaVinci Discovery Center of Science and Technology encourages kids to be “Renaissance Thinkers” by being curious, testing ideas, recording observations, and developing critical and creative thinking skills.

A graphic system comprised of color-coded panels inspired by scientific flow charts encourage inquiry and critical thinking at hands-on workstations throughout the galleries.
