AERIAL SCREW BY Leonardo da Vinci
By: Sonya Nemes
MOST INTERESTING INVENTION!
The Aerial Screw is my favorite invention by Leonardo. It is truly amazing! It is like a giant whirling pinwheel. The "blades" of it would have been made out of linen. When turned fast enough it would create lift, forcing it to fly! This man is a genius!
Leonardo wrote backwards with his left hand and you had to use a mirror to read what he had written.
This is a modern version of what he had designed.
A little about him.....
Leonardo Da Vinci was considered the most talented man ever to live. He was also "ahead of his time". By this I mean, he invented things that we use today! He had over 30 large notebooks filled with sketches if his inventions, anatomy and more!
