Today’s inspiration came to me from a gift guide I saw before Christmas. It featured an ecosphere from brookstones and I’ve been thinking how I want to get one. In high school my siblings and I bought one for my dad (a science enthusiast) from Natural Wonders (remember those stores they used to have at all the malls?). Anyway, today I was just thinking again about how I want one of those biospheres again and then the idea occurred to me just to make one. After a bit of research I found these cool sites and videos on making your own.
Only problem now is the foot of snow on the ground. I won’t be finding any brine shrimp, snails or algae anytime soon. I’ll have to add it to my list of things to do in 2009.
