Learning About Leonardo
"Learning About Leonardo is a multidisciplinary science driven web-based project developed by computer graphics students at high schools in the Bronx and Sweden, exploring the mystery of the Mona Lisa through scientific inquiry and presenting original music composed by Leonardo da Vinci. We also have identified Leonardo's Portrait of an unknown Musician! There is an interactive quiz, multilingual musical postcards in 23 languages and a dozen da Vinci diversions to explore randomly. This project compares the work of Dr. Lillian Schwartz and Rina de Firenze, author of Mystery of the Mona Lisa. There are current articles online about the celebration of Leonardo's Bronze Horse in Milan as well as a view of the Mona Lisa Bridge in Oslo. We also have curricula resources contributed by teachers for English, Social Studies, Math, Health Education, Business Education and Special Education."

Musical Instruments Described
"Here are definitions/descriptions of a bunch of musical instruments. Most of these are early (i.e. pre-Baroque), non-Western, or obscure, but I've included some that should be familiar to most readers for comparison, because they have an interesting history, because they're mentioned on one of my other pages, or just because I felt like it. Give me enough time and it might grow into an encyclopedia..."
