Leonardo’s Basement is an innovative educational organization for children and their families, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They create imaginative learning environments where girls and boys ages 6 to 16 design and build their creative ideas, mixing art, science and technology.
[October 18th] was the first day of Leonardo’s Basement’s annual Creativity Convention for students, held during the days their teachers attend an October convention.
Such a brilliant idea. For those who don’t know, in Minnesota, every October the teachers go to a convention over a long weekend (MEA weekend). Leonardo’s Basement takes in students during the days that those kids would normally be in school. If you live in Minnesota, and have a child between the ages of 6-16, be sure to check out Leonardo’s Basement. Here is a small chunk of their mission statement:
Leonardo’s Basement is an innovative educational organization for children and their families. We create imaginative learning environments where girls and boys ages 6 to 16 design and build their creative ideas, mixing art, science and technology. We provide exciting building experiences for over 600 children a year and introduce our programs to thousands more at neighborhood and community events.
