Cambridge Science Festival - Leonardo da Vinci: the case for lifelong self-education
Saturday, 24 March 2012 from 16:00 to 17:00 (GMT)
Cambridge, United Kingdom
Who was Leonardo da Vinci? An artist? Engineer? Scientist? Mathematician? Anatomist? Francis Wells, a surgeon who has conducted live open-heart surgery on TV, argues that many scientists today have lost the powers of observation which Leonardo da Vinci had. He will takes his audience on a whirlwind tour of Leonardo's work describing his incredible talent in all these disciplines. Hosted by The Prince's Teaching Institute.
