A couple of months ago my biology class was tasked with making a model of an animal cell. Most kids do this with a cake or jello or something, but I, being me, made it out of aluminum.
I used the scroll saw to cut out all of the little organelles, and then I filed off the edges, drilled holes, and attached them to the cell using 6-32 screws and cap nuts. Everyone was pretty confused when it was my turn to present (most of all the teacher), and I made sure to mention that my father had not helped me with it at all. The teacher didn't really know what she was looking at, and she actually liked another girl's custom cell t-shirt better. All that girl did was pay a t-shirt company to make it for her. Baaahh. Whatever. I like mine better. If I had more time I would have liked to put frosted plexi under the organelles and light it with leds, but I was rushed. It is currently in her classroom among other non-edible projects, so I can't really work on it anymore. Hope you like it!
