If you're looking for holiday craft ideas, gift ideas, or a fun team building day, join this terrarium workshop in Menlo Park. You will create your own wonderland in a ball ornament.

What makes our experience different is that we consider a terrarium as a botanical experiment and a philosophical discussion topic. In this exciting experiment, we will set up a self-sustainable sealed terrarium.

Your teacher will discuss what makes systems self-sustainable. You will learn about the carbon, oxygen, and water cycle, which are each very important, scientifically, for life. Get creative and design your own living creation however you want from the provided materials.

Every terrarium has a different life path. Following our scientific plan, you will combine the right elements to create a unique, isolated, and sustainable terrarium. The right combination can live for a long time.

Anyone with a curiosity about plants will appreciate this fascinating, deep dive into how to make terrariums. This class is great for groups, holiday parties, and more, as you'll be able to connect with nature, make a festive handmade ornament, and learn something new!

I am a scientist and musician. I like to combine art, technology, and science to better understand the world. I am very energetic, I love to read and write. Learning a new culture and making new friends is my motivation.

I am an internationally certified science and terrarium teacher. I love to share my skills with others.

I have been to more than 30 states of America. I have traveled from East to West of the USA twice, drove all the way alone! Travel is a very important part of my life. Also Music and Science !!

Best Regards :)
