MPB Learning is offering free CEU courses and a variety of resources for professional development to engage educators in the state of Mississippi in Leonardo da Vinci’s lasting influence as an ARTIST, INVENTOR and INNOVATOR. 

These workshops and courses will provide a comprehensive understanding of ways to integrate the art and science of Da Vinci into all levels of PK-12 education through insight into his mind and the times that he lived. This program is implemented to amplify the impact of the Ken Burns film "Inside the Mind of a Genius: Leonardo Da Vinci."

Collaborate with teammates:

Develop an instructional plan and implement in the classroom by collaborating with your Canvas Unit. These teammates are teachers who have participated in one of the three live training days, and who teach the same grade band as you.
