He was considered as a Renaissance man, Leonardo was curious, intelligent & talented. Many people thought he was the smartest man to ever live with all the inventions he created, he basically was.

If he didn’t create the double hull, then boats in the ocean would be leaning to one side. He also created the anemometer, it tells us what the wind speed is & it would be measured. He also created the lightweight armored military war vehicle, if we didn’t have that we wouldn’t have innovated his invention. We would have a car for war, but it wouldn’t be that intense of a build.
I chose Leonardo da Vinci, because I learned about him in my found tech class and she talked about how he was an inventor. We didn’t go over what he invented but we learned about the da Vinci method and I was really interested in what he built & what he had painted. I knew that he painted the Mona Lisa, but I wanted to see what other painting he did. I used to like art and seeing all the different colors used to create a piece of artwork. Knowing what inventions people made was interesting because if it wasn’t for them getting up and exploring then we would not have the stuff that we have
