Drawing together a group of exceptional people from a range of backgrounds – science, technology, the arts, media, education and business – the Leonardo group acts as a ‘brain trust’ of Science Gallery. This is where themes for the new exhibitions are inspired and where collaborations are sparked. Brainstorms often lead to Leonardos contributing to programmes in their area of interest and providing the connections to make it happen.
