What Leonardo da Vinci's contributions to the world?

My history teacher wants me to understand what the contributions of Leonardo Da Vinci did for the world and how the world might be different if you have never been around in my report. I need to write two paragraphs on what contributions did and 2 about how the world could be different if he was never around. Please tell me some of the contributions made to the world and / or how the world might be different if he was not there. Thank you! 🙂

He gave us ideas to draw something that looked like a helicopter. He painted The Last Supper and the Mona Lisa.

With this landmark compilation of classes and exercises, anyone can afford to be coached by the man whose students are propelled from his legendary classes at Northwestern University to Broadway and Hollywood. Acting is as simple as brick-laying and as great as Leonardo da Vinci’s art, writes Downs.

Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic drawing, Vitruvian Man. In his notes for this work, Leonardo writes that it is based on the work of the architect Vitruvius. Sometimes called The Canon of Proportions, or, less frequently, Proportions of Man, the original drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius in Book III of his treatise De Architectura. Vitruvius described the human figure as being the principal source of proportion among the Classical orders of architecture. Vitruvius determined that the ideal body should be eight heads high.
