  • Examine the engineering accomplishments of the ultimate Renaissance man.
  • For over a decade, MODERN MARVELS has brought grand stories to life.

Celebrating ingenuity, invention and imagination brought to life on a grand scale, MODERN MARVELS® tells the fascinating stories of the doers, dreamers and sometime-schemers who created everyday items, technological breakthroughs and man-made wonders.

Nearly 500 years after his death, Leonardo da Vinci still intrigues us. Though best known as a great artist, but he was also a remarkable scientist and inventor. His love of mechanics was unparalleled and he filled his notebooks with pages of incredible machines--from weapons of war to "Ships of the Skies", submarines to scuba suits, robots to an analog computer, and even contact lenses and alarm clocks! How did a 15th-century man envision such modern innovations? MODERN MARVELS® travels back in time to probe the mysteries of the man whose genius truly could not be confined to a single discipline.
