Fun project for the weekend

Here is a fun activity to try over the weekend until The Art of Science returns on Monday: GeekDad describes how to make an ecosystem in a jar. It’s a great science experiment and something pretty to keep nearby. Well, okay, maybe not “pretty” by traditional standards, but at least aestheticly pleasing in a nature/zen garden sort of way.
