boy, Stixx

We’re popping up at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace, for a workshop inspired by Royal Collection Trust’s exhibition, Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing.

What can I expect at Leonardo’s Ingenious Inventions?

  • Have a go with a STIXX machine to transform old newspapers into solid building rods and work together as a team to create a huge structure!
  • Take inspiration from Leonardo’s flying machine sketches to design and build your own flying machine and test it in a wind tube. Can you design a machine which could fly, or float, or hover?
