What is a Maker Faire? Simply put, a Maker Faire is an event created by Make magazine to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset”.  But don’t take our word for it.  Take a look at just a tiny fraction of the photos from last year’s Atlanta Mini Maker Faire:

Terrarium Design

Terrarium Design

Like many inventions, Terrariums were an accidental discovery. A gentleman by the name of Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward was attempting to observe the metamorphosis of an insect in a closed environment. Using a simple glass bottle with some soil and water, he inadvertently sprouted a small fern and grass plant. He was able to keep the plants alive for nearly four years without watering or maintenance. Fast forward 170 years and you have the modern day terrarium that still retains the exciting chance to observe nature and be surprised by it. So please feel free to come and make your own little plant world!
