Mr Smyth’s Class learn about Ecosystems in STEM workshop

Today in their Try Five STEM workshop with Ana from TUD Grangegorman, the children learned about ecosystems and built their own terrarium- which they will bring home today.

A terrarium is like an aquarium, but for plants instead of fish. It is made in just about any glass container.

It is planted to look like a miniature garden or forest enclosed in its own little world. They had lots of fun!
